Westray Processors Ltd produces premium quality fresh and frozen crabmeat for a wide range of wholesale and retail customers throughout Orkney and further afield.
The business still operates as a cooperative, with the bulk of shareholders living on Westray.
A major upgrade of the Westray Processors factory at Gill Pier in 2000 was followed six years later by the building of a new £200,000 cold store, which included a purpose built bait freezer and chill facility for holding live crab before processing. The factory operates to the highest quality and hygiene standards, with all its crab fished sustainably.
Such has been the success of this community venture on Westray that brown crab is now the main catch of the island’s fishing fleet, with the business continually exploring new markets for its products.
