Mowi’s new Kyleakin plant, which cost £100million, face community criticism.

According to The Press And Journal local residents have complained of “some new additions” that have come to the village since operations went live, including a strong smell and a humming sound.

In April Mowi celebrated the first delivery into the feed plant. This summer the plant started to deliver feed to salmon farms.

Mowi is now inviting members of the local community and the community council into their plant to listen to their concerns and enhance local community relations. According to the newspaper, Mowi bosses said they are “confident” of resolving the issues.

Mowi’s operations director Claes Jonermark said that odour emissions are being checked at “specific points” around the village twice a day, and that engineer experts are on-site to determine the salmon company’s strategy.

The new feed plant is expected to deliver a £2million annual boost to the local economy.
