MOWI FARMS TAKE DELIVERY OF FISH FEED MADE AT KYLEAKIN
Mowi farms take delivery of fish feed made at Kyleakin. Two ships from Norway, Eidholm and Mikal With, are now delivering the first feed produced at Kyleakin in north-west Scotland to Mowi farms in Scotland.
The fish feed plant at Kyleakin, now with a full complement of 55 staff, is going through a commissioning phase to build capacity and stability.
Site manager Kevin O’Leary said: “So far, everything is going to plan. We are very much still in the commissioning phase and we are learning every day, but I’m delighted that we have been able to produce and deliver feed to a range of Mowi farms.”
The team at Kyleakin is being supported by colleagues from Norway as Kevin explains: “We are a one feed team. Our colleagues from Norway and Scotland are working extremely well together and I’m sure that this relationship will continue to deliver fantastic results for Mowi feed.”
Farms across mainland Scotland and the Western Isles are receiving feed produced at Kyleakin, including Loch Alsh, Ardintoul, Loch Duich, Maol Ban, Harport, Port Na Cro, Bagh Dail nan Ceann, South West Shuna, Colonsay, Rum, MacLean’s Nose, Invasion Bay and Tabhaigh.
