OUR FARMING PROCESSTHE ROAD MATTERS

For us, the road to the result is as important as the result itself. That is why we set ourselves apart with proper execution at every link of our value chain, seeking to constantly improve and strengthen our operation, with the final goal set on a sustainable product of the highest quality.

This conviction is reflected in the four pillars that we have defined as the basis for how our company is run: Product, Patagonia, People, and Profitability. We want all our current and future strategies to base their objectives and plans on these pillars, which allows us to have an operational outlook that aims for the highest quality at every stage of the process.

FRESHWATER

Currently, we operate three in-house freshwater hatcheries (Los Tilcos hatchery, Aguas Buenas hatchery and Las Quemas hatchery) and one outsourced hatchery (Trafún hatchery). At Los Tilcos hatchery (RAS), we execute the incubation phase and first feeding, targeting an average weight of 6.0 grams at full capacity. At Aguas Buenas hatchery, we execute the first feeding and alevin stages. Lastly, in the Trafún and Las Quemas hatcheries, we manage the smoltification phase, followed by dispatch to the sea. All the hatcheries, except Los Tilcos, are land based and open-flow and allow for the production of over 6,500,000 smolts per year.

SALTWATER

We have 48 concessions located in strategic zones in the regions of Los Lagos and Aysén, which have the latest-generation technology and automatized processes that allow an efficient and intelligent operation to safeguard the wellbeing of our salmon and achieve optimum development. We also have video monitoring tools, underwater HD monitoring cameras, automatic feed systems, and exclusive embarkations for our company’s use, among other resources that are part of Yadran.

PROCESSING PLANT

Our processing plant is located in Quellón on Chiloé Island, the southernmost port in Los Lagos Region and the port of entry for embarkations originating in the region of Aysén. The installation is adjacent to our own waiting cages with direct pumping of live salmon, which permits flexibility and continuity in the processes, in that it offers efficient optimization of the production schedule, achieving a cage-to-packaging time for fresh unfrozen products of 3.5 hours. The plant has lines for whole salmon, fillets, and different fresh and frozen portion presentations, as well as machinery for gutting, filleting, trimming, deboning, scaling, and packaging, in addition to continuous refrigeration and freezing tunnels.

UP-TO-DATE REGULATIONS AND BIOSECURITY

In 2010, the new law regulating salmon farming in Chile came into effect, establishing norms for concessions and creating the concept of “neighborhoods”, which are areas that, based on oceanographic studies, allow for common sanitary management regulated by the authority, among other related matters.

In addition, our company’s plans for biosecurity are generated through a series of practices, measurements, and procedures that seek to reduce the risk of biological threats that affect our production centers, and in cases that these threats manage to overstep sanitary boundaries, to be able to control them within the farms and other production centers in the area.

The concept of biosecurity is permanent at Yadran, involving all those who work directly or indirectly on different processes throughout the entire production chain, from roe to harvest.
