Popular OMEGOR® Vitality by U.G.A. Nutraceuticals found compliant with
Friend of the Sea standard for sustainable Omega-3
29 June 2018_ Italian supplement company U.G.A. Nutraceuticals achieves Friend of the Sea certification for OMEGOR® Vitality line from a blend of highly refined oils.
Friend of the Sea’s standard for sustainable Omega-3 fish oils certifies that the oil originates only from fisheries that are compliant with Friend of the Sea’s sustainable fishing requirements, including good fishery management, selective fishing gears and social responsibility, and that a full chain of custody is in place throughout the supply and production chain.
Founded in 2005 in Gubbio, and with operating offices in Monza, in north of Italy, U.G.A. Nutraceuticals specializes in the research, formulation and development of Omega-3 food supplements of superior quality. OMEGOR® Vitality is its most popular Omega-3 concentrate – 75% in EPA and DHA – obtained by a patented purification technology. Furthermore, its Omega-3s in triglyceride form ensures an optimal bioavailability and an absence of odour and after taste so typical of most common fish oil supplements.
“Our aim has always been to provide our customers Omega-3 formulations of the highest quality by a world standard. We have rigorously selected our suppliers and built long term relationships over the years,” declares Gentian Selimi, CEO of U.G.A. Nutraceuticals. “With the FOS certification we show our long term commitment to sustainability intertwined with that of quality. There cannot be top quality Omega-3 without sourcing the ingredients from sustainable sources. We aim to complete the FOS certification of all of our products before the end of 2018.”
“We are glad to record the increasing environmental awareness and engagement of the Italian nutraceutical industry. We welcome U.G.A Nutraceuticals Friend of the Sea certification providing Omega-3 consumers with environmentally sustainable supplements,” comments Paolo Bray, founder and director of Friend of the Sea.
