Jan Feenstra, the former managing director at Mowi Ireland, is set to face his former employer in court in January, just months after stepping down from the role in the summer of 2022.

"I am very grateful for Jan's long tenure with our company, a period which has seen our Irish business grow to become a world-leading supplier of premium organic salmon," said Mowi CEO Ivan Vindheim at the time.

For his part, Feenstra said he was looking forward to spending more time on "personal projects and outdoor life."
