Best Aquaculture Practices
As the first seafood distributor in Canada to become Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certified, Intercity Packers (previously Albion Fisheries) is proud to highlight our association with these standards. The comprehensive BAP standards encompass the entire aquaculture production chain, including farms, processing plants, hatcheries and feed mills.
• All standards address every key element of responsible aquaculture, including environmental responsibility, social responsibility, food safety, animal welfare and traceability
• The seafood processing plant standards are benchmarked against the latest Global Food Safety Initiative food-safety requirements
• A market development team actively promotes the BAP program to retailers and foodservice operators worldwide on behalf of BAP-certified facilities
The Quality Control Team at Intercity Packers works directly with fishermen, fishing boats and firms to improve pre/post-harvesting techniques ensuring the finest quality fish and shellfish available. Our ozonated water cleaning system is used in every stage of processing; ensuring product cleanliness, bacterial elimination from the environment. Our plant personnel undergo continuous training to meet and exceed strict industry standards.
