Our hatcheries, Tabasca & Mar Bravo, meet requirements of recognized private international certifications.
The production systems have been carefully selected in order to reduce the impact on the environment, having implemented certified systems in all our farms and organic standards in Chongón.
All production sites are managed under a “zero” antibiotic philosophy, promoting the use of probiotics and natural fertilizers.
All shrimp farms have analysis of the quality of water and health monitoring.
We constantly improve our facilities and invest in our people in order to meet the demands of new products and update our technologies for the optimization of our processes.
In 2017, we have increased our installed processing capacity by 44% representing 723.000lbs/day of shrimp processed in head-on, head-less and value-added.
The investment includes state-of-the-art freezing equipment that shortens freezing times allowing us to offer high quality products faster.
|Equipment||Quantity||Lb / month|
|Total freezing capacity||16.650.647|
|Tunnel freezers (tornado)||2||3,879,920|
|Palinox brine tunnel||2||4.365.187|

Continuing our expansion projects we will incorporate a new processing plant, located in Las Brisas, Duran, which we will project into production in January 2018.
The new plant has a development of 3 phases. In the initial one the lines of production of whole shrimp with a capacity of 334.000 pounds and totally automated are contemplated.
The project incorporates investments in state-of-the-art freezing equipment.
