Omarsa Gets Four-Star BAP Certification


Omarsa S.A., one of Ecuador’s top three shrimp exporting companies, has been farming, processing and shipping shrimp for over 33 years.  It has become the first Ecuadorian shrimp supplier to receive the highest achievement in the Best Aquaculture Practices’ (BAP) third-party certification program by earning stars for its processing plant, farms, hatchery and feed mill.


Omarsa became eligible to offer four-star BAP shrimp on confirmation that it feeds from Inbalnor S.A. in Ecuador and Vitapro S.A. in Peru had attained BAP certification.


Omarsa’s processing plant, two of its farms (Cachugran and Puna) and its hatchery (Mar Bravo) have been BAP certified since 2007.


Sandro Coglitore, CEO of Omarsa S.A., said, “Having our entire aquaculture production chain BAP certified is a whole new level we can proudly announce to all of our customers.  This next step shows our commitment to a sustainable production that includes environmental and social responsibility, food safety, animal welfare and traceability.”
