Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, MacKenzie founded MPS in 2002 and had more than 30 years’ experience in the seafood industry.
Commenting on MacKenzie’s passing, resource planning manager Mary Bisset said: “Our deepest sympathies are with Angus’ family; wife Marion, daughters Emma and Rebecca, devoted mum, brother Alasdair, sister Mairi and much-loved nieces. We are doing all we can to support them at this tragic time.
“MPS continued to operate throughout Angus’ illness with an elected management committee and will continue to do so to ensure our business strategy is delivered.”
According to Bisset, the ethos and foundations laid by MacKenzie had proved invaluable in allowing the business to continue.
“As Angus would have wished, our absolute priority is to continue to run MPS with the same pride and attention to detail that Angus had himself,” she added. “Our dedication to the provision of excellent service to all our customers will continue to be paramount.”
A memorial service to celebrate MacKenzie’s life will be held at the Òran Mór venue in Glasgow at noon on Monday 20 August.
Glasgow-based MPS processes ‘luxury’ Scottish and imported salmon, which it acquires from sustainable sources. It serves the business-to-business market with bespoke own-label services and the business-to-consumer market through its commercial brand, The Sùlaire Fish Co.
