Marcela Farms Incorpoated (MFI) is a 100% Filipino-owned Company – a conglomerate of diversified business covering agriculture & aquaculture, and manufacturing industries.
Driven by a vision to play an active role in the industry, to help ensure food security and generate employment, Marcela Farms Incorporated ventured into Penaeus Monodon (Black Tiger Prawn) culture more than two decades ago. The success of such venture encouraged grow out expansions for Penaeus Vannamei Shrimps (farm-raised white shrimps), milkfish, tilapia and other varieties.
MFI is committed to become a global seafood supplier with world-class products. Its thrust to be competitive and to deliver value prompted the company to adapt a wholly-integrated system. Supporting the aquaculture division are these subsidiaries:
BOHOL AGRO-MARINE DEVELOPMENT CORP. in one of the top-five prawn exporters in the country and the only EU accredited processing plant (No. 1641). It is equipped with state-of-the-art Gram contact plate freezer and cold storage facilities and the first to use this model in the Philippines, which made us better equipped to meet seasonal volumes.
Fresh prawns & shrimps, milkfish and tilapia which are directly harvested from the farms are immediately processed under strict adherence to Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) quality system, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Sanitation Standards Operating Procedures (SSOP). Continuous training to hone the skills of our employees is given importance.
MARCELA AQUA FARMS is operating big farms for Penaeus Monodon (Black Tiger Prawns), Penaeus Vannamei (white shrimps), milkfish and tilapia (using brackish water). Apart from pond operations, this division is also operating cage farms for white pompano, mangrove jack (Red Snapper), green grouper and sea bass. The core areas which are closely monitored during production comprise: fry/fingerling quality, feeding & water management, and post-harvest handling.
MARCELA FRONTIER RESOURCES, INC. is one of the large-scale private hatcheries in the country with two farms located in the towns of Lila and Panglao, Bohol, Philippines. Its main aim is to provide consistent fry supply of Penaeus Monodon (Black Tiger Prawns), Penaeus Vannamei (white shrimps), milkfish and tilapia. It has Black Tiger Prawn breeders which are specific pathogen-free (SPF) imported from Hawaii.
MARCELA FEED MILL, a semi-automated feed mill (Van Aarsen), is one of the key factors which help in driving down cost of farm operations. Further, its other role is to guarantee year-round supply of aqua feeds which are antibiotic-free and of high nutritive value (instrumental in achieving the ideal feed conversion ratio at the farms).
