Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre

The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), which works with industry and academia to help drive growth across the sector, has appointed garlandpr to manage its public relations for a 12-month period.

Appointed following a four-way pitch, the team at garlandpr will be:

  • Gaining coverage of announcements at Scottish, UK national and international level;
  • Maximising PR opportunities around flagship events;
  • Developing the thought leadership elements of the campaign; and
  • Ensuring that the objectives and successes of SAIC and the industry are communicated to SAIC’s audiences.

Commenting on the award of the contract Holly Garland said:

“Garlandpr is delighted to be working with such a cutting-edge industry body.  SAIC has a fantastic track record in terms of linking up the industry with academia and helping companies secure funding for different projects.

“Aquaculture in Scotland is the lifeblood of so many communities that protecting its future whilst driving sustainable growth for the industry is critical.  We are really excited to be part of telling the story which is so fundamental to Scotland’s future.”

Speaking of the appointment SAIC CEO Heather Jones said:

“Garlandpr impressed us with their track record of securing national media coverage and their knowledge of both the Scottish and UK political landscape; a combination of media relations and public affairs expertise that will help SAIC increase awareness of the innovative work being done to help the Scottish aquaculture sector achieve its ambitions for growth.”

Garlandpr was launched in 2014 by Holly Garland, a former Senior Press Officer at 10 Downing Street.  Holly was also Senior Press Officer for London 2012 and PR Manager at Glasgow 2014.
