Built on sustainability and responsibility
Building our business on natural marine resources from the pure, pristine cold waters of Arctic Norway, sustainability is core to our thinking. If we don’t take good care of the environment we harvest from, we not only undermine our business and the marine sector we are a part of, but the future of all of us.
Norwegian fisheries are considered the most well-managed fisheries in the world, with tight and strict regulations to prevent over-fishing and to minimize the effect on the nearby marine environment.
Highest certification standards
We set high standards for our suppliers. The fisheries, as well as our suppliers and refineries, must be certified for sustainability. Our salmon oil is approved by The Aquamarine Stewardship Councils, the highest certification standard for salmon farming. Our fish oil is certified both by Marine Trust and Friend of the Sea.
Traceability from egg to oil
We can trace the origin of all the fish oils we use in our products. Salmon oil can be traced all the way from tiny salmon eggs through salmon to salmon oil. The wild-caught fish oil can trace back to the original catch at sea. Traceability through the value chain is crucial for tight quality control.
Our concentrated fish oil is certified according to Friend of the Sea and Marine Trusts IFFO RS Assured program.
Salmon oil is better and therefore significantly more expensive than other sources of omega-3, as measured by price per gram of omega-3. To give consumers peace of mind that OmegaMarine Forte+ consists of the declared amount of salmon oil, we have ORIVO certifying every batch we produce. The batch number appears on all bottles of OmegaMarine Forte+, and the consumer can access ORIVO’s site and check every batch number. Natural Pharmaceuticals was the first omega-3 supplier in the world to independently certify the species in our omega-3 product with the help of ORIVO.
Good Manufacturing Practice certified
Our facility for manufacturing of capsules and tablets, Pharmatech in Norway, is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified and Norway’s largest in its field.
All our products are certified according to Informed-Sport, to give athletes peace of mind that our products don’t contain ingredients prohibited in sports.
Natural Pharmaceuticals is a member of GOED, the industry body for omega-3 producers and distributors, and adheres to GOED’s ethical standards for both products and sales and marketing.
