The company became eligible to offer four-star BAP trout upon BAP certification of its processing plant in June. Peruvian Andean Trout’s farm and hatchery were also recently BAP certified.

Located in the Peruvian Andes, all three facilities graduated from the iBAP program, a precursor to full BAP certification, early this year.

Peruvian Andean Trout sources feed from BAP-certified feed mills owned by EWOS Chile Alimentos Ltda. and Biomar Chile S.A., completing its four-star BAP status.

Four-star BAP status denotes that a product originates from a BAP-certified processing plant, farm, hatchery and feed mill.
