More than 6 million Mowi meals are enjoyed around the world every day. Thanks to our world-leading, innovative and sustainable approach, we offer a wide selection of healthy, delicious seafood. Our customers can choose from a range of products, including whole gutted fish, fillets and steaks, to ready-to-eat items like smoked salmon and portioned fish.
Mowi farms Atlantic salmon in British Columbia using an integrated system of brood stock selection, freshwater hatcheries, saltwater farms and state-of-the-art processing plant. Our experienced sales and marketing staff works to ensure that our fresh fish reach consumers every day.
We work hard to make sure these waters stay clean and to ensure the product we provide to our customers is safe and healthy. Through a variety of testing protocols from the hatchery to the customer, our products are inspected for therapeutic residues, pathogens and naturally occurring environmental contaminants such as dioxins, PCBs and heavy metals.
We are proud of the fact that our food safety testing protocols far exceed any regulatory requirements and that all residue tests have shown to be below levels specified by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Health Canada, and country of export.
CFIA audits each processing plant annually to ensure compliance with the Quality Management Plan for Fish and Seafood. Certificates of registration are approved on an annual basis to those plants that are in regulatory compliance, and export licences for the U.S. and Europe are issued.
Achievement of the BAP Seafood Processing Plant standard is further validation that our production exceeds regulatory requirements. Mowi continues to maintain excellence in proper food safety management.
In Canada, we operate salmon farms on the coast of beautiful British Columbia and Vancouver Island, where 600 people produce 45,000 tonnes of sustainable farm-raised Atlantic salmon each year.
The remoteness of the fish farms is offset by the natural beauty of the surrounding environment, the stimulating, challenging work of these aquaculture careers in which you continually learn, and the camaraderie of working together in a small salmon farming team to grow a healthy crop of fish.
Meeting the needs of retailers and food service providers and driving category innovation, the Mowi product development team spots market trends and identifies opportunities, ideas and requirements for new products. Often this is done exclusively in close cooperation with a partnering customer. At other times, new products are developed in-house by Mowi and become widely available thereafter.
Around the world, there are a number of well-recognized brands that are produced by Mowi.
