Marine Harvest Ireland (MHI) is a fully integrated salmon farming and processing company and has been established in Ireland since 1979. It is now Ireland’s largest seafood company, employing over 250 staff across salmon farms, hatcheries and processing plants in Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Kerry and Cork.
Marine Harvest Ireland recently announced that their Deenish site in Co. Kerry is the first in Ireland to achieve the prestigious World Wildlife Fund-backed Aquaculture Stewardship Council certification.
MHI became verified members of Origin Green upon the approval of their five year sustainability plan in May 2013. As part their Origin Green plan, one of the targets set was to obtain the Aquaculture Stewardship Council certification for all of their production sites by 2018.
