Isle of Man queenies awarded European PDO stamp


Isle of Man queenies have been awarded the European Union Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) stamp.

The type of scallop joins foods such as gorgonzola and champagne, which can only be labelled as such if they come from the designated region.

Business development manager for Island Shellfish, Nick Pledger, said: "We supply Manx queenies to a number of top restaurants in the UK, including Jamie Oliver's restaurants and Rick Stein's seafood restaurant. This is great news for us."
