For more than 70 years, BioOregon Protein (BOP) has been a fixture in the Northern Oregon Coast. In business at our current location in Warrenton since 1946, our physical facility encompasses 10 acres adjacent to the Columbia River and comprises manufacturing, research, on-site maintenance, and warehousing. Since the earliest days of our existence, we have been involved in processing marine fish and shellfish by-products obtained from regional seafood processors. From Vitamin A extraction from salmon liver for human dietary supplements to assisting in the development and manufacture of the Oregon Moist Pellet (OMP) for aquaculture, and the production of highly digestible fish protein and fish oil for aquaculture, pet food and animal feeds, BioOregon Protein has a significant breadth of experience. We produce both de-boned and bone-in fishmeal depending on our clients’ requirements. Our personnel have extensive technical capability and years of manufacturing experience in whole fish and rest raw material utilization, which has contributed to our market adaptability and product value.
Since our parent company, Pacific Seafood Group (www.pacificseafood.com), purchased us more than a decade ago, we have continuously improved our technology and expanded our scope of processing. In April 2017, PSG purchased another facility that is located in Newport, Pacific Bio Products (PBP). PBP processes Pacific Whitefish and traditional fishmeal. This facility operates seasonally and has increased our volume and production capability.
As with all Pacific Seafood facilities, BOP and PBP have rigorous quality assurance program that strives to always deliver the highest quality products available. We work closely with State and Federal regulatory agencies to ensure that our quality program is the best it can be and remains ahead of the competition. Customers are also welcome to audit our facility to ensure that we meet or exceed your highest standards.
Inherent in our mission is our commitment to sustainability and traceability. The fisheries targeted are certified as ‘sustainable’ by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and our processes provide commercial outlets for the whole fish. Our raw product comes to us directly from our parent company, which guarantees traceability from the boat to final packaging.
Our raw materials are 100% natural, and we have a variety of products that qualify for an organic label.
