Marine Harvest Feed Plant 2

Marine Harvest is one of the largest seafood companies in the world, and the world’s largest producer of Atlantic salmon. The company employs 12,717 people globally, and is represented in 24 countries. In 2016 the company had a turnover of EUR 3.6 billion.

Marine Harvest Fish Feed (MHFF) is one of the newest divisions within Marine Harvest. Having started manufacturing in June 2014, MHFF has quickly established itself as a competitive supplier of salmon feed playing a key role in supporting Marine Harvest Farming Operations in its delivery of high quality, nutritious, safe and profitable salmon.

In February 2017, permission to open a second fish feed plant on the Isle of Skye in Scotland was granted. The company said the development on the site of Altanavaig (Allt Anabhaig) quarry, Kyleakin would create 55 full-time permanent jobs. MHFF reports Kyleakin Feed Mill – Update week 47

Build is progressing very well:

      Process building is at full height
      Silo 10 is at full height
      First piles driven for pier construction

This second plant which will open in late summer 2018 will manufacture a broad portfolio of conventional and organic feeds for both fresh and seawater phases of salmon growth in Scotland, Ireland, Faeroes and in Norway.
