    It sounds mad: shipping UK-caught langoustine thousands of miles to be processed, then back again to be turned into breaded scampi and put on sale. That's what leading seafood producer Young's started doing last year. The whole round-trip is about 17,000 miles (27,353km). "They cover this up and distract it by saying it's carbon neutral, but in truth this is about minimising costs and maximising profits." says Willie Mackenzie of Greenpeace.

    Sad to say even this cost-cutting may not save the pending job losses at Young's in Scotland
