Based out of Notre Dame Bay in Newfoundland, Canada, Norlantic Processors Ltd. was formed in 2001, when industry pioneers Terry and Heather Mills merged Thimble Bay Farms Ltd. (est. 1989) with Black Gold Inc. (est. 2000). Our farms have been in existence since 1983. Our vision was simple: to create a consistent top quality organic Blue Mussel that looks and tastes great, while sustaining our rich environment and honouring our heritage and reputation for excellence.
In 2014, our company was the first processing facility in the world to receive the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification. BAP certification is a stringent process that includes independent, third-party audits of all aspects of our operation, including environmental responsibility, food safety and social impact.
Achieving this certification is our way of demonstrating our continued commitment to producing the best mussels in the world, in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner. We continue to do this by following organic standards and best aquaculture practices, and continuously improving our processes through a culture of innovation.
