Bomar Pescados, Brazil
Bomar Pescados was founded at the beginning of this millennium, when many Brazilian entrepreneurs started to recognize aquaculture as a promising business opportunity.
From the very beginning, the company focused on producing high quality products with a minimal environmental impact. Because the company runs every aspect itself – from hatchery to harvest and processing of the shrimp – Bomar can pride itself on a clean and traceable end product.
Aquaculture is a people’s business. Only by investing knowledge and best practices, we can get a consistently qualitative product in the supermarket.
Bomar’s activities include three shrimp farms, totaling a surface of approximately 350 acres of active nursery ponds, partly supplied with PL by the company’s own hatchery.
Recruiting and training people from the local communities surrounding the farms, Bomar generates approximately 320 jobs on farms and 220 more jobs in the industry.
