RECORD MONTH FOR MOWI ROSYTH PROCESSING PLANT

RECORD MONTH FOR MOWI ROSYTH

Record month for Mowi Rosyth processing plant. Figures in for May show that the Mowi salmon processing plant at Rosyth near Edinburgh, Scotland, recorded a 43% uplift in volume compared to the same period last year (8,900 versus 6,225 tonnes tonnes).

The team went on to break another record in June, recording the biggest volume of head on gutted salmon processed in a week: 485 tonnes.

Gary Paterson, head of operations at Rosyth said: “This is a phenomenal achievement especially considering that many staff have moved between departments and roles to support colleagues in other areas of the site.

“We simply would not have achieved these results without the goodwill and strong teamwork that is part of our culture here at Rosyth.”

Rosyth is also in the middle of developing Hall B and increasing the chilled storage capacity. A new by-products area will also be created as this has been identified as a growth area for Mowi. The additions to the site at Rosyth will be completed in the autumn.

Aquaculture is transforming the seafood industry and Mowi is playing an important role in that change – leading the way with sustainability, innovation and responsibility.

They grow their salmon in the remote and pristine waters of the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland. They provide jobs and support fragile rural economies in some of the most remote communities in the country.

In 2015 they produced more than 50,000 tonnes of high quality farmed salmon, forty percent of it for the overseas market including, most recently, China.
