Steps of Production

We are one of the top seafood processing companies in the region, because our highly trained team of expert assessors choose only the best quality seafood for processing.


Sourcing Raw Materials

We purchase from reliable and registered suppliers or directly from the ministry approved vessels. We are committed to get our fish and seafood products from trusted sources which supply the highest possible quality.


Transported to Factory

After reaching shore, the fresh catch raw materials from the sea is washed and loaded on to refrigerated trucks (temperature at 0°C), and transported to BD Shrimp factory, whilst adhering to the highest hygiene standards.


Unloading and Selection

Chilled fish or seafood products from refrigerated trucks are unloaded, whilst adhering to all hygiene standards. The fish is then inspected for gaff marks and any external damage. Only standard quality products are accepted.


Temperature Checking

Temperature is measured at the point of unloading. We adhere to strict standards and any fish with high temperature and damage are returned immediately to the supplier.


Collecting Samples

The fish products with acceptable temperatures undergo a grading test and an experienced inspector cores each fish product and pulls out a sample of flesh from the center of the fish.


Grading & Quality Testing

This each collected sample is used to check quality and to categorize the fish into grades according to colour, texture and various other characteristics. The same sample is also sent to our laboratory for chemical testing.


Factory Processing

Catch data submitted by the suppliers are crosschecked and verified by our quality assurance team. Following which, the raw materials are processed in the factory according to all HACCP, EU and FDA standards/regulations.


Weighting & Packing

The fish are washed and thoroughly cleaned and the weight of each fish is measured. The processed fish are vacuum packed in to vacuum bags (LDPE + Nylon) and labelled. We pack the way you want it!


Master Packaging & Storage

The vacuum packed products are stored in ice slurries to maintain a constant temp. When ready for export, they are taken out and boxed in to rigifoam boxes / corrugated cartons with plenty of gel ice + dry ice and sealed. The box is labelled and then stored in cold rooms till dispatch.
