Join Us – Trade

The SAGB is the voice of UK shellfisheries. But it’s not just Catchers & Growers who benefit from the specialist information, expertise and support we offer.

We work with our Trade members to ensure their views are represented at the highest levels within Government, the European Commission and the European Parliament. We also work closely with regulators to ensure that your concerns are fully understood, whatever the issue.

By being the first point of call for policy makers we are well placed to influence the regulatory and legislative process. We also work with the media to ensure that the supply chain's position is known on the issues of the moment.

We are actively involved in ‘crisis management’ and that means when things go wrong we are best placed to help Trade members understand the issues and how they may impact their businesses. For example we ensured the UK Food Standards Agency took a pragmatic and proportionate response to the Commission decision on cadmium in crab meat.

We also act as a catalyst in bringing together producers, processors, buyers and sellers and offer a free service whereby requests for products can be circulated to all our Catcher & Grower members.

Trade membership costs £500+VAT a year.

A public listed company will pay twice the standard subscription.

Member Testimonials

“There are often mishaps and misunderstandings in the retailing of live molluscs and crustaceans, it is therefore important to belong to an organisation that can provide you with an excellent level of expertise, especially in this time of overburdening bureaucracy. Membership of SAGB is invaluable.”
