Mowi invests in crucial safety equipment in shinty

Mowi is proud to help make newly approved shinty helmets more affordable and accessible to players as part of our long-standing relationship with the Camanachd Association, shinty’s governing body.

A rule was passed at the 2022 AGM of the Camanachd Association stating that all players under 21 should wear helmets. Now, thanks to Mowi’s five figure investment, the newly approved Bauer IMS 5.0 helmet will be available at a discounted rate for under 21s.

Helmets are an essential piece of equipment for shinty players, and this investment will help ensure that all players have access to this vital safety equipment.

Speaking about the initiative, Derek Keir, CEO of the Camanachd Association, said: “Mowi’s innovation comes at a crucial time for Scottish communities with the continued cost of living and travel adding barriers to participation in any sport. We are delighted to partner with Mowi to make important protective equipment more affordable for shinty players. Safety is our top priority, and this investment will help ensure that even more players have access to the best equipment available.”

Mowi has been a long-standing partner of shinty, supporting the sport through sponsorship, shared expertise and investment for many years. The Camanachd Association and Mowi are committed to working together to support the growth and development of shinty. This investment in helmets is just one example of their ongoing commitment to the sport and its players.

Ian Roberts, Director of Communications for Mowi, added: “We are proud to continue our support of shinty and to enhance the safety measures in place. This project and the wider governance solidifies our impression that the Camanachd Association works to provide a safe and inclusive space for children and adults, to which Mowi is proud to partner. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate in shinty, and this investment in helmets will reduce additional barriers to participation and is an important step towards achieving that goal.”

The helmets are available to members of the Camanachd Association from Highland Industrial Supplies.
