Summer mapped out for Mowi’s Salmon Wagon

Ten events on the cards for fund-raising food truck


Mowi Scotland has announced the summer itinerary for its Salmon Wagon food truck, which helps raise funds for local causes in the areas where the salmon farmer operates.

Arriving at events fully stocked and staffed by Mowi, all of the proceeds from the sale of barbecued salmon meals from the charity food truck go to the group that applied for the truck to attend.

Last year, sales of salmon fillet burgers and salmon noodle salads from the Salmon Wagon earned £7,318 for charities and community initiatives in the Highlands and islands and Rosyth in Fife, where Mowi employs around 800 people at its secondary processing facility.

Vital occasions

This year, the Salmon Wagon is set to attend ten major events from Rosyth to Kyle of Lochalsh - with stops at Achiltibuie, Appin, Benbecula, Isle of Harris, Isle of Skye, Kilchoan, Newtonmore, and North Uist along the way.

Mowi Scotland community engagement officer Jayne MacKay said: “After the success of last year we are excited to hit the road again to support another ten brilliant events, which are vital social occasions for our local communities.

“From village galas, agricultural shows and Highland games to festivals, women’s shinty finals and fundraisers for RNLI lifeboat stations, we can’t wait to show our support for these gatherings which forms a key part of Mowi’s commitment to help the communities we work in thrive.”

The ten charity events selected by Mowi Scotland for 2023, which the company says are drawn from as wide a range of charities and geographical areas possible, are listed below.
