“Following Mowi's strategy of being a leading integrated seafood provider and to support our Mowi branding strategy, we have identified a need to strengthen the area of sustainability. Mowi is a company that is living and producing in close cooperation with nature, and our success depends on sustainable and environmentally responsible interactions with the natural environment. A vital part of the CSO's responsibility is to strengthen and implement Mowi's sustainability strategy,” the company explained in a statement issued today.

The company has also implemented a new policy to ensure that their entire group management team is primarily located at the group’s HQ in Bergen, meaning that US-based Glenn Flanders is leaving the team to “spend even more time on investor relations activities in the Americas and Asia”.
