Sustainability is no longer a buzzword. It has become a driving force behind consumer choices and industry practices. Within the supplement industry, omega 3’s and their sustainability have received considerable attention as concerns over wild fish stocks become an increasingly big factor in determining procurement strategies. As the supplement industry strives to meet this requirement for sustainable solutions, Ahiflower oil can be a guide for how the natural products industry can challenge itself to make sustainability the minimum acceptable threshold for raw materials, and ideally making them regenerative where practical.
At the core of Ahiflower oil’s sustainability lies its plant-based origins. Without the knowledge of where or how a crop is produced or processed, it’s impossible to talk about its sustainability confidently and authentically. All Ahiflower crops are grown by qualified farmers who follow regenerative agricultural practices that aim to enrich the soil and the environment vs. depleting it. Ahiflower oil provides a uniquely balanced daily omega with an unparalleled combination of omega-3-6-9 fatty acids, essential for health, vitality, and wellness. What sets it apart is not just its nutritional value, but its impressive sustainability credentials that resonate with
environmentally conscious brands.
Throughout its life cycle, Ahiflower oil has an incredibly low environmental footprint. As a crop, it requires no irrigation and thrives without synthetic fertilisers or pesticides. Grown regeneratively, Ahiflower minimises resource consumption, prevents soil degradation, and
enhances biodiversity. Choosing Ahiflower as an ingredient allows brands to align with regenerative and sustainability principles, reduce their ecological impact, and contribute to a healthier planet, whilst providing their customers with a complete and balanced omega solution.
From farm to our in-house, fresh expeller-pressed and small batch oil production, Ahiflower is delivered through mindful logistics. Expeller-pressing helps maintain the nutritional profile of Ahiflower oil, avoids the use of petrochemical solvents that are so widely used in oilseed processing and all the co-products are upcycled as either renewable energy feedstocks, soil nutrient supplements or in specialty nutrition ingredients. Each acre of regeneratively grown Ahiflower produces as much omega-rich oil as 500,000 anchovies from a certified non-GMO crop.
Ahiflower is grown, processed, and supplied by a certified B-Corp company, which highlights just how much emphasis is placed on supplying a truly regenerative alternative to an industry desperately looking for a sustainable, traceable, reliable and completely green supply chain.
