MacKnight's Miami operation is a pioneer in meeting BAP stringent demands.

BAP Certifies First North American Salmon Smokehouse

  (UNITED STATES, 10/24/2017)

The MacKnight Food Group’s smoked salmon processing plant in Miami, Florida, has attained Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification, the first salmon smokehouse in North America to earn the distinction, the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) announced.

The 15,000-square-foot Miami facility is one of four processing plants owned and operated by the privately owned company. The secondary processing plant produces smoked salmon products, which are then shipped to retail and foodservice customers throughout the United States.

MacKnight produces a wide variety of smoked salmon products using Atlantic salmon farmed in Scotland, Norway and Chile, including smoked salmon sides, sliced smoked salmon, smoked salmon fleurettes, smoked salmon mignons, salmon bacon and salmon burgers.

Each fillet is dry-cured with a unique blend of salt and sugar, then double smoked in the fine Scottish tradition to lock in the succulent flavor of the hardwood chips.

“Responsible aquaculture is of the utmost importance to MacKnight,” said MacKnight CEO Jonathan Brown. “As the world’s reliance on farmed fish grows, it is up to everyone in the industry to ensure we all follow the best possible practices. BAP is striving to ensure this happens, and we are delighted our Miami operation is a pioneer in meeting its stringent demands. We are confident our other facilities will soon also get accreditation.

“As a company we have a responsibility not just to our customers but also to the environment, and BAP certification shows we are on the right track,” added Brown. “We will continue to work hard to ensure that our salmon products are not only the best, but also continue to meet the highest environmental, welfare and food-safety standards.”

MacKnight smoked salmon is produced from the world’s best Atlantic Salmon.

Through the first three-quarters of 2017, there were a total of 1,737 BAP-certified facilities in 31 counties and six continents, including 392 processing plants, 1,072 farms, 173 hatcheries and 95 feed mills.

BAP is the world’s most comprehensive third-party aquaculture certification program, with aquaculture standards encompassing environmental responsibility, social responsibility, food safety, animal health and welfare and traceability. It’s also the only program to cover the entire aquaculture production chain — processing plants, farms, hatcheries and feed mills.

MacKnight smokes salmon in the traditional cold-smoking ways.

About BAP

A division of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, Best Aquaculture Practices is an international certification program based on achievable, science-based and continuously improved performance standards for the entire aquaculture supply chain — farms, hatcheries, processing plants and feed mills — that assure healthful foods produced through environmentally and socially responsible means. BAP certification is based on independent audits that evaluate compliance with the BAP standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance.

About MacKnight

MacKnight’s premium smoked salmon is produced from the world’s best farm-raised Atlantic salmon. Drawn from the coldest of waters, where salmon develops its best flavor and texture, MacKnight offers a consistent, delicate smoked salmon.

Each fillet is dry cured in small batches, with a unique blend of salt and sugar, then smoked in the fine Scottish tradition to lock in the succulent flavor of the hardwood chips. And, to ensure that it has the greatest flavor, MacKnight is double smoked.
