Ecuador's GISIS Feed Mill First to Earn BAP Certification

07 September 2015

ECUADOR - GISIS has become Ecuador’s first feed mill to attain Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

It’s also South and Central America’s third feed mill, outside of Chile, to earn the distinction. The shrimp and tilapia feed mill is located in Durán, Ecuador.

Shrimp and tilapia companies sourcing from BAP-certified hatcheries, farms and processing plants can now source feed from the GISIS facility and qualify to offer four-star BAP product. Four-star status is the highest designation in the BAP program.

GISIS is part of Nutreco Group, a global leader in animal nutrition and fish feed. The company’s advanced feed solutions are at the origin of food for millions of consumers worldwide.

BAP certification is based on independent audits that evaluate compliance with the BAP standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
