There is a new, cheaper version of the book originally published by Penguin as ‘Local Heroes: How Loch Fyne Oysters Embraced Employee Ownership and business success’. The new version looks like this, and is renamed ‘Local Heroes: The Liberation of Loch Fyne Oysters’.
The book tells the exciting entrepreneurial story of how this sustainable seafood company was founded and built, against the odds, in the wilds of Scotland. On the death of one of the two founders, the employees won control of the company in the teeth of other potential buyers. The employee-owners then worked to make a success of their business, and achieved huge uplifts in productivity.
