Vitafoods preview: Bioriginal Europe/Asia receives MSC Certification

Bioriginal can now supply AlaskOmega fish oil products with the certified sustainable seafood MSC logo

Bioriginal Europe/Asia recently received Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Certification. This means the company can now supply AlaskOmega fish oil products with the certified sustainable seafood MSC logo.

The certification is for Chain of Custody of Alaska Pollock oil, which includes processing, storage, trading, transportation and wholesale. So both deliveries of AlaskOmega oil products from Bioriginal’s warehouse and from the production/blending facilities in Den Bommel can be delivered with an MSC certificate. This MSC certification fits with Bioriginal’s goal to be a worldwide leader in sustainable omega-3 products and solutions.

In November 2013 Bioriginal Europe/Asia BV and Organic Technologies finalised their exclusive distribution agreement for the AlaskOmega product range. This range includes a broad range of omega-3 ingredients comprising natural wild Alaskan fish oils, ethyl ester (EE) concentrates and triglyceride (TG) concentrates. One of the unique characteristics of AlaskOmega is that is it the only omega-3 fish oil concentrate worldwide that is certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council.
