Laboratoire LESCUYER® Omega-3 Certified Sustainable

01 December 2014

GLOBAL - 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 Eastern Central Pacific Ocean (FAO Area 77) 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.

“The Friend of the Sea certification is very important to us because it acknowledges our commitment to sustainable fishing practices and our sense of responsibility concerning natural resources”, explains Mrs Lavannier, in charge of regulatory affairs and quality in the company Laboratoire LESCUYER.

"Our customers are this way assured that our Omega-3 dietary supplements are from fully sustainable origins."
