SONGA is one of the top four white shrimp producers in Ecuador.

SONGA Now Capable Of Offering Four-Star BAP Shrimp

  (ECUADOR, 2/24/2017)
Ecuador’s SONGA (Sociedad Nacional de Galapagos C.A.), is now eligible to offer four-star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) shrimp, only the second company in Ecuador capable of doing so, the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) has announced.

Four star is the highest designation in the BAP third-party certification program, signifying that a product originates from a BAP-certified feed mill, hatchery, farm and processing plant.
 
SONGA's shrimp farms use state of the art technology for shrimp production in captivity under semi- intensive culture. 

SONGA’s shrimp processing plant, two of its farms (Lebama Farm and Naturisa Farm) and its hatchery (Macrobio Hatchery) recently attained BAP certification. The company sources its feed from GISIS and IMPROSA feed mills in Ecuador, both of which are BAP-certified.

SONGA is one of the top four white shrimp producers in Ecuador. In 2015 and 2016, SONGA was the No. 1 Ecuadorian exporter to mainland China, South Korea and the United States. The company is well known and reliable in the global markets due to its prime quality, consistency and fair weights.
 
SONGA's main product is the whole shrimp which is processed immediately upon arrival to the plant in order to maintain optimum freshness and texture. 
 
“The efforts of SONGA to differentiate itself by achieving the maximum level of third-party certification truly represent its responsible aquaculture practices. SONGA is one of the leading companies in a leading country committed to environmental and social responsibility. We appreciate very much SONGA´s support,” said Marcos Moya, manager of BAP Supply Development.
 
The selection and classification is performed by trained and qualified personnel, this process is reviewed by highly experienced supervisors.

BAP is the world’s most comprehensive third-party certification program, with standards encompassing environmental responsibility, social responsibility, food safety, animal health and welfare and traceability.
 
Songa's vertical integration allows to provide a complete and accurate traceability of each shrimp packed.
