HR Business Partner

About the role

Mowi ASA is one of the largest seafood companies in the world, and the world’s largest producer of Atlantic salmon with 12,500 employees, operating in 25 countries and a Group turnover of €3.8 billion. Since the Mowi adventure started in 1964 the company has grown and changed in many ways. From its humble beginnings, when a few pioneers started farming fish in their back yards, through to the present day, Mowi has become a global leader in its field. As the company has grown, both organically and as a result of mergers and acquisitions, Mowi has maintained its leading position at the forefront of the aquaculture industry. The business is committed to ethical sustainability and has been ranked “Most Sustainable Protein Producer in the World” by FAIRR two years in a row. Meeting the needs of retailers and food service providers and driving category innovation, the Mowi product development team spots market trends and identifies opportunities, ideas and requirements for new products. Often this is done exclusively in close cooperation with a partnering customer. At other times, new products are developed in-house by Mowi and become widely available thereafter. Around the world, there are a number of well-recognized brands that are produced by Mowi.
