PERU - Peruvian Andean Trout SAC has become the world’s first company qualified to offer four-star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) trout.
Four-star BAP status denotes that a product originates from a BAP-certified processing plant, farm, hatchery and feed mill. It’s the highest achievement in the BAP program.
The company became eligible to offer four-star BAP trout upon BAP certification of its processing plant in June. Peruvian Andean Trout’s farm and hatchery were also recently BAP certified. Located in the Peruvian Andes, all three facilities graduated from the iBAP program, a precursor to full BAP certification, early this year.
Peruvian Andean Trout sources feed from BAP-certified feed mills owned by EWOS Chile Alimentos Ltda and Biomar Chile SA, completing its four-star Bap status.
“Congratulations to Peruvian Andean Trout SAC. Guided by General Manager Jose Ernesto Munoz, the company has followed through with its responsible aquaculture commitment,” said Marcos Moya, BAP global business development manager.
“We are so excited to see the completion of the company’s hard but very productive work that resulted in an excellent performance in the audit resulting in BAP certification.”
