Dibaq feed mill achieves BAP certification
The Global Seafood Alliance announced last month that Dibaq Group, a leading player in animal health and nutrition, is the first company in Spain as well as in continental Europe to attain Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification for one of its feed mills.
Located in Fuentepelayo, Spain, the newly certified facility manufactures aquaculture feed for a variety of seafood species — including salmon, sturgeon, trout, bream bass, barramundi, sole, turbot, seriola, eel, olive flounder, tilapia, catfish and shrimp — as well as pet food for dogs and cats in separate facilities.
Dibaq has been involved in the aquaculture and fish nutrition business since 1986 and is a market leader thanks to its commitment to quality, research and innovation.
Today, with a total manufacturing capacity of 120,000 tonnes per year, Dibaq sells its high quality products in more than 40 countries in four continents.
Dibaq is family owned, run by second- and third-generation members of the same family. It was founded by Jose Luis Tejedor and Ana Lázaro in the 1950s in the town of Fuentepelayo (Segovia), in the heart of the province of Segovia.
"We are immensely happy to obtain BAP certification. At Dibaq, we respond to the demands of our clients throughout the world and strengthen our firm commitment to high specialisation in fish nutrition and geographic diversification, delivering products of the highest quality and performance and being sustainable with the planet Earth," said José Luis Tejedor, managing director of Dibaq.
Currently, there are almost 150 BAP-certified feed mills in 25 countries worldwide.
