Shrimp and finfish companies sourcing from Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)-certified hatcheries, farms and processing plants can now source feed from the PT Centralpertiwi Bahari (CP Prima) feed mill in Indonesia and be capable of offering four-star BAP product.
The feed mill, owned by PT Central Proteinaprima (CP Prima) and located in Lampung province, recently attained BAP certification. It’s Indonesia’s first feed mill to do so. CP Prima’s shrimp hatchery and one of its farms is also BAP certified.
Companies are capable of offering four-star BAP product if the product originates from BAP-certified feed mills, hatcheries, farms and processing plants. It’s the highest achievement in the BAP program.
Currently, there are more than 50 BAP-certified feed mills worldwide.
CP Prima is a fully integrated shrimp producer as well as Indonesia’s market leader in shrimp fry and shrimp and finfish feed production. The company’s products include frozen shrimp, shrimp feed, shrimp fry and probiotics.
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.
