Eskimo 3, Cardinova Omega 3 supplements product line, is now carrying Friend of the Sea seal of approval. All marine ingredients at the base of the product line originate from certified fish oil producers, sourcing from approved Friend of the Sea fisheries.
The fish oil is sourced from anchovies fished in the South East Pacific Ocean by a Friend of the Sea approved 37 vessels fleet. The fishery is managed according to sustainable criteria, with highly selective fishing method and from stocks that are not overfished nor overexploited.
Cardinova has a traceability system in place and analytic reports on tracking and tracing are available in order to demonstrate the product respects all requirements of FOS standard and that there is no possibility of mixing FOS certified and non-certified products.
“Environmental sustainability is part of our philosophy and we rely on Friend of the Sea to prove the sustainable origin of our products” explains Peter Åberg, COO of Cardinova.
“We’re glad that Cardinova placed its trust in our project: our common aim is conservation of the marine habitat”, adds Paolo Bray Director of Friend of the Sea certification program.
