11 September 2014

NORWAY - Friend of the Sea has confirmed the certification of a range of refined and concentrated fish oils from GC Rieber Oils AS.

GC Rieber Oils products, supplied to Omega-3 supplements distributors, health food industry, and the chemical industry, can now carry the Friend of the Sea logo.

GC Rieber Oils, headquartered in Kristiansund on the North West coast of Norway, is a leading global supplier of Omega-3 fish oils.

Raw material originates from approved Friend of the Sea fisheries operating in the Eastern Central Atlantic Ocean (FAO area nr. 34) and in the South East Pacific Ocean (FAO area nr 87).

Small pelagic species – sardines, mackerel and anchovies – are fished by selective purse seine gear. The stock is neither overfished nor overexploited.

“GC Rieber Oils is committed to sustainable and traceable fisheries and raw material sourcing in accordance with our exemplary company business ethics,” comments Mr Jan Roger Bjerkestrand, Managing Director at GC Rieber Oils AS.

“We greatly value the FOS certification as we continuously seek to bolster our company’s commitment and practices towards sustainable sourcing practises and stewardship of ocean resources.”
