Congratulations to GISIS, 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. Quality, innovation and sustainability are guiding principles, embedded in the Nutreco culture.
A division of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, Best Aquaculture Practices is an international certification program based on achievable, science-based and continuously improved performance standards for the entire aquaculture supply chain — farms, hatcheries, processing plants and feed mills — that assure healthful foods produced through environmentally and socially responsible means. BAP certification is based on independent audits that evaluate compliance with the BAP standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.
