Mowi Scotland has hosted more than 60 tours over the course of the year, ranging from politicians, academics and retailers to trade bodies and Mowi employees from business units around the world, the company said in its monthly newsletter, The Scoop.

Visitors included people from Italy, Norway, France and Japan.

The salmon farmer said the largest delegation of 38 visitors came from an international university, followed by the University of Stirling (34) and Scotland’s Rural College (21).

‘Informative and enjoyable’

Sites visited included the Blar Mhor processing plant at Fort William, Inchmore hatchery and a fish farm at Loch Leven.

Communications director Ian Roberts, who hosted some of the visits, said: “2019 has been a busy year for tours at Mowi and this is an area that we have really developed to make it as informative and enjoyable as possible.

“From the viewing platform at Inchmore, specifically designed to facilitate tours, to the virtual reality goggles we have now allowing visitors to virtually visit some of our most remote areas of the business, we are able to provide a comprehensive insight into aquaculture.”

Visitor centre

The company says it wishes to engage with interested stakeholders about its business, although points out that active worksites cannot always satisfy all requests.

Mowi is also planning a visitor centre for the public close to its feed plant at Kyleakin on Skye.
