About Us:
Southern Farm Tilapia was founded in 1998 on the premise that customers want only the best. Since the beginning, we have risen to that challenge by doing whatever it takes to provide incomparable quality and distinctive taste. We combined intense research with resources and solid commitment to enter the ground floor of a flourishing business: farm-raised tilapia. But we didnít stop there. In response to consumer demand, we expanded our seafood and pork product lines. We recently introduced two new product brands. Coastal Treasure is a seafood line that includes bacon-wrapped appetizers. Southern Farm is a pork and beef brand offering bacon, sausage and steaks.

Details make the difference. Our fishermen store their catch in customized containers of our innovative Super Chill solution. We use state-of-the-art leak-proof packaging that prolongs freshness. We make our bacon, and have developed a formula and assembly process to maximize flavor using an instant quick-freeze process. From the hatchery, where we raise tilapia fingerlings, to the plantís kitchen, where we lock in the distinctive taste of our smoked bacon-wrapped seafood appetizers, we use only the finest equipment and processes to ensure premium products.

Southern Farm Tilapia is the stateís largest indoor aquaculture operation, raising more than two million pounds of tilapia annually. We have hatchery, advanced fingerlings and processing facilities, and operate fish production sites at nine locations. We process our products at our modern 17,000 square-foot plant in Bailey, N.C., conveniently located minutes from I-95. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes a tilapia filleting machine, which is one of the few in the U.S., deboners, skinners and automatic grading machines. We have the unique capability to process seafood and added-value products under the same roof, possessing both FDA and USDA certification. We are an approved food supplier to the Armed Forces.
