Spanish Laboratorio de Complementos Nutritionales achieves Friend of the Sea certification for Omega – 3
Laboratorio de Complementos Nutritionales (LCN) – a company specialized in manufacturing of nutritional oils and food supplements located in Barcelona – has recently obtained the Friend of the Sea certification for Omega – 3 products originating from healthy stocks of a variety of species, including anchovies, sardines, squid and tuna trimmings.
LCN receives raw materials from Friend of the Sea approved fisheries, which operate in different areas of the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Fish stocks are not overfished or overexploited in those areas.
In addition, the presence of a specific traceability system assures that certified products respect the certification requirements, excluding the possibility of a mix with non-certified products.
“Our company has always been committed to offering the highest quality product to our customers,” explains Belinda Álvarez, General Manager of LCN. “Friend of the Sea certification of our Omega – 3 products is a further confirmation of our dedication to sustainability and protection of our oceans”.
