We believe in a Sustainable - Traditional - Healthy Environment.
We use only superior grade Organic Salmon, reared in the wild waters of the Atlantic ocean 4 miles off the West Coast of Ireland. Here, the salmon live and feed in an environment that closely resembles their natural habitat. The stocking densities are incredibly low set at a fraction of conventional farming salmon. Within the enclosure the ratio is 99% water 1% salmon, The location of the farm is almost 4km from the shore, an extremely challenging environment with heavy currents and turbulent seas where, in order to stay in the same position the salmon have to swim 15km every day. This constant movement and battling against the ocean makes for a much leaner, much healthier salmon, perfect for smoking. The food fed to the salmon is all natural and organic. The salmon is certified organic in every country in Europe which means that every input is checked, monitored and approved by the certifying body. The smoking process is also checked, monitored and approved by the certifying body.
When buying Kinvara Smoked Salmon you can rest assured that you are buying a premium product, with safe nutritious inputs, that is kind to the environment.
For centuries, smoking has been used in Ireland as a way to preserving food. At Kinvara, we take this ancient craft and enhance it with modern technology to produce a smoked salmon that is second to none.
We carefully select the finest organic salmon which are first salted and dried for 12 hours before being gently cold smoked over oak and beech for a further 14 hours. This process of lightly salting, drying and gently cold smoking has been developed over years and produces a consistent premium quality Organic Smoked Salmon, worthy of our awards.
We take our role as guardians of the planet for the future generations very seriously. Core to everything we do in Kinvara is sustainability. The production methods used in the organic salmon is proven to be sustainable and kind to the environment. The smoking process is sustainable in that all the is added is sea salt and smoke generated from wood chips from a sustainable resource. In the packing and shipping we use recyclable plastic, but offset this through our support for tree growing with “Tree-Nation”.
