EPAX a Friend of the Sea

AALESUND, Norway EPAX AS received Friend of the Sea (FOS) certification for its sustainable marine sourcing and production methods; the supplier will soon offer its omega-3 oils with documented and traceable origin from sustainable fisheries. An accredited certifier verified EPAXs compliance to FOS criteria, including products not originating from overexploited stocks, fishing methods that dont impact the seabed, and using selective fishing methods. Traceability is audited onsite by FOS, while annual traceability surveillance is run on all purchase reports.

Environmental sustainability and concern for the worlds sea life is a top priority at EPAX; the Friend of the Sea certification speaks to our commitment to being a documented, sustainable operation, said Bjorn Refsum, CEO of EPAX. We are fortunate that our vertical integration through our corporation allows us, as well as our customers, the unique position of providing complete traceability-from our own fish harvesting in Peru to our finished omega-3 products in Norway.
