In the late 1970’s, a group of farmers in Noxubee County, Mississippi, began to grow catfish as a way to diversify their farming operation. They sold their catfish to Saul Fish Processors which was a family owned and operated catfish processing plant. As the catfish industry continued to grow and expand, Mr. Bill Saul asked the farmers that had been selling catfish to him to consider buying the business. Superior Catfish Products was founded on July 1, 1994.

Our catfish are grown within a 40 mile radius of our plant. Most of the ponds have limerock beds which, in many peoples opinion, produce an extra sweet, fine tasting fish. Our farmers do an outstanding job of pond management to produce a safe product for the consumer.

Over the years Superior continued to expand and grow new markets. Because of the need for a updated facility and increased production , Superior built and moved into a new 34,000 square foot facility on Highway 45, one mile south of Macon, MS. in March of 2003.

Although we have grown, we still work hard to maintain the same level of quality control, on-flavor screening, cleanliness, and “second mile customer service” that we have come to be known by.
