Laboratoire LESCUYER® Omega-3 dietary supplements have been confirmed to be compliant with Friend of the Sea standards following an audit and can now continue displaying the Friend of the Sea seal of approval.
The fish oil at the base of the whole product line is sourced from anchovies fished in the South East Pacific Ocean (FAO Area 87) only by approved Friend of the Sea purse seine fleets. The fishery is managed according to Friend of the Sea sustainable criteria, with highly selective fishing methods and from stocks that are neither overfished nor overexploited.
A full traceability system is in place throughout the supply chain, from the fisheries to manufacturing facility and the finished product.
