Built on sustainability and responsibility
Sustainability is a core element of all we do. Our business is built on natural marine resources from the pure, pristine, cold waters of Arctic Norway. If we don’t take good care of the environment from which we harvest, we will undermine our business, the marine sector to which we belong, and most crucially, the future of our ecosystem.
Norwegian fisheries are considered to be the most well-managed fisheries in the world. We have strict regulations to prevent over-fishing and to minimize the effect on the surrounding 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, and it is certified by both 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. Our salmon oil can be traced all the way from tiny salmon eggs through the salmon to the salmon oil. The wild-caught fish oil can be traced 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, ORIVO certifies every batch we produce. The batch number appears on all bottles of OmegaMarine Forte+, and the consumer can check every batch number via ORIVO’s website. 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 manufacturing facility for capsules and tablets, Pharmatech in Norway, is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified and the largest in its field in Norway.
All our products are also certified by 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 products, sales, and marketing.
