Catfish processor BAP certified
The United States’ largest catfish farming and processing company, Heartland Catfish Co., has attained Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification for its Mississippi processing plant.
The Itta Bena, Mississippi, plant processes live catfish. Heartland Catfish processes 60-75 million pounds (27-34 million kilograms) of live fish per year from farms located in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas.
The company also celebrated BAP success in August, when the company’s Greensboro, Alabama, repacking plant earned re-certification, after being first certified in 2010. Approximately 15% of the company’s finished product is repacked at the Alabama plant.
Heartland Catfish is a vertically integrated company, hatching, raising and processing its catfish and shipping a majority of it using its own truck fleet. The company produces a variety of fresh, frozen, breaded and marinated catfish products that are marketed to retail and foodservice customers across the United States.
