Mowi Ireland is Ireland’s largest producer of farmed Atlantic salmon. The Company was founded in 1979 by a group of Irish shareholders and now is a part of Mowi ASA, the world’s leading seafood company and largest producer of farm-raised Atalntic salmon.
Mowi Ireland operates in five counties on the west coast of Ireland, from Donegal in the north of the country to Cork and Kerry in the southwest of the country.
The first harvest of Atlantic salmon took place in Ireland in 1984 from young salmon put to sea in 1982. By 1986 the company became self-sufficient with its own broodstock.
MOWI's ethos rests ultimately on the belief that by farming the ocean they can sustainably produce healthy, nutritious and affordable food for society at large. Their stewardship of the environment is essential to reaching the companies long-term goals and to safeguard the interests of future generations.
