Blacktiger

Who doesn't know them? The delicate Black Tigers from Le Dragon stand for the highest quality and the finest enjoyment. But how do the fine prawns from aquaculture get to you in the refrigerated shelf? Join us on a culinary journey to sunny Vietnam and see how these little flavour guarantors are cultivated and processed.
The Minh Phu Seafood Corporation has stood for perfection and top quality for over 30 years. As leading experts in seafood processing, Minh Phu has been one of our closest business partners for several years. The family business from the province of Cà Mau is responsible for the production of our well-known Le Dragon Black Tiger prawns. The small but delicious prawns are farmed under optimal conditions in oxygen-rich saltwater ponds. A constantly high oxygen concentration in the water not only ensures good growth of the prawns, but also promotes their health, appetite, and well-being. Oxygen also reduces the effects of temperature-related stress on the prawns.
Although Cà Mau does not have a direct connection to the sea, shrimp farming is thriving. One reason for this is the construction of Vietnam's first seawater supply pipeline. The almost 5-kilometer-long pipeline was completed in 2020 and ensures that fresh sea water reaches the holding ponds. The fresh sea water ensures, among other things, that the PH value remains the same throughout the year and that the minerals that are essential for the shrimp are always present. At the same time, harmful components are carefully filtered out of the water. This enables the Black Tigers to grow steadily and, above all, faster.

The Minh Phu Seafood Corporation's recipe for success is the sophisticated 2-3-4 breeding system (2-3-4 high-tech shrimp farming model). The sustainable breeding model enables cost-efficient but also eco-friendly cultivation. The 2-3-4 model was used for the first time in 2014 after years of research and development.
The 2 stands for the first two phases of breeding. In a first step, the young animals are kept in a small pond for 25-30 days. This allows for much better and closer care of the shrimp. In a second step, the shrimps are transferred to a larger tank and bred there until harvest.
The 3 stands for harvesting in three steps. Gradual harvesting allows for greater variety in the caliber of shrimp.
The 4 stands for the four post-harvest cleaning standards. Minh Phu's shrimps are free of germs and are only kept in clean water.
They are also grown in a clean environment and are completely free of antibiotics or other chemicals.

The success of the 2-3-4 model quickly became apparent. Over 90% survival rates have been recorded since the model was introduced. For comparison: The survival rate of shrimps bred in aquariums is usually around 80%. The yield per hectare of water area is also 450 tons. This allows the Minh Phu Seafood Corporation an annual “yield” of 100'000 tons of raw material. In addition to the breeding farms, there are also organic farms that extend over 50'000 hectares of ecological mangrove forests.

Treatment/Transport

In addition to the almost 200'000 hectares of breeding areas, the Minh Phu Seafood Corporation owns several production factories. Around 100’000 tons of raw material are processed in these production facilities every year. The facilities are located in Cà Mau and Hâu Giang and are among the most technologically advanced in the fishing sector. Dozens of tons of raw material are processed every day and shipped all over the world. With the support of an IQF conveyor belt (individually quickly frozen, products are frozen individually and immediately after harvest), Minh Phu can process the raw material even faster, which speeds up the procurement process from Europe even more.
The goods are shipped directly from the production facilities to us in Switzerland. 
Although sea freight takes much longer to get to Switzerland, but it is still the most popular freight method. Almost 90% of today’s trade volume is transported by ship. This is not only more cost-effective, but also significantly more environmentally friendly.
