Natural Pharmaceuticals – our story
Natural Pharmaceuticals was founded on the basis of the twenty five years’ experience of its Norwegian investors Knut-Erik Karlsen, Ole Bjørn Fausa and Reidar Nilsen, who from the very beginning of their career have dealt with nutrition and exploiting the resources and benefits of sea fish.
This is also a result of their family traditions as well as deep belief that fish is extremely healthy and necessary for all people in order to ensure their good health. For both Ole Bjørn Fausa and the company’s CEO Jonas Törnquist this is particularly important. Their grandparents were fishermen and their families lived off fishing.
Nature’s gifts, which Norwegians have used for centuries in their cuisine, today have a chance to be found on tables around Europe and the world. Therefore we are using our long-standing experience to share our products with you.
Our company culture – working with us
At Natural Pharmaceuticals we believe that every individual in our organisation has the capability and the determination to improve our business operations.
We want every employee to participate in setting and achieving our common goals.
Our culture manifests itself in how we work together with energy, passion and respect for the individual. For us it is all about teamwork and good leadership. It is how we build trust, how we focus on customers and drive improvement. We fully believe in passion, open dialogue and feedback.
