PERU - Vitapro S.A has become Perus first feed mill to attain Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

The shrimp feed mill, which attained BAP certification in September, is located in Trujillo, Peru. Vitapro’s Inbalnor S.A. feed mill in Ecuador attained BAP certification in August. Both produce shrimp and fish feed under the Nicovita brand.

Currently, there are 15 BAP-certified feed mills in Central and South America.

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