Our low-fat, protein-rich catfish nuggets provide premium quality catfish at a high value. Nuggets are created by trimming the belly flap portion from a natural shank fillet.
Our innovative processing, packaging and shipping methods guarantee our customers receive the highest quality catfish products available. Computers regulate air and water temperatures in all areas of the plant to discourage bacteria growth and product degradation. We also operate our own fleet of refrigerated tractor-trailers to deliver our products throughout the United States. Stored at the proper temperatures, our fresh products are safe to consume up to 14 days from packaging.
Our frozen products are Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) in a matter of minutes to preserve their freshness and ensure our customers receive superior-quality catfish year-round. Heartland Catfish Company is able to freeze all of our production every day in company-owned storage freezers. In fact, we have the largest in-house storage capacity in the industry, at more than 2,000,000 pounds.
Heartland Catfish Company manages our catfish supply from egg to harvest. This allows us to deliver consistent, high-quality, on-flavor U.S. farm-raised catfish year-round. Plus, our fish are fed a high-protein, grain-based floating feed that gives them their signature mild and sweet flavor.
