Anyone interested in finding out more about the Mowi Feed Mill in Kyleakin will have their chance this weekend.

An open day will be held at Kyleakin Connections on Saturday 9 November and will run until 10am until 1pm.

The team from the Feed Mill will talk through the latest developments at the site and will also answer questions.

For those wishing to have a tour of the Feed Mill, minibuses have been organised to take visitors there.

Speaking about the forthcoming event, Claes Jonermark, operations director, Mowi Feed, said: “We really hope that people will take up the opportunity to come and see us.

"In August, we met residents living close to the Feed Mill in the Old Kyle Farm Road to discuss any concerns they had.

"November 9 is an opportunity to meet the wider community and explain more about the Feed Mill, where we are now and plans for the future.

"We’d love to give locals a better insight into what happens at the Mill and how it is an important part of Mowi’s operations.”

A presentation from the management team will be delivered at 10.30am, followed by a question and answer session.

Mowi’s Salmon Wagon will also be making its first visit to Skye to provide lunch to those attending and there will even be a chance to experience salmon farming in virtual reality for those that are keen to find out more.

Residents interested in finding out more about employment opportunities still available at the Feed Mill are also encouraged to attend.
