Greenpeach earns Friend of the Sea Certification for omega 3 oil sourcing. Friend of the Sea, the preeminent certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment, announced that it has certified GreenPeach, a maker of nutritional products, for sourcing Omega 3 oil from certified sustainable methods. The California-based company can now display the Friend of the Sea logo on its products that contain Omega 3 oils.

“GreenPeach has demonstrated leadership in the industry through its thorough commitment to sustainability and quality,” said Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea. “We are honoured to include them in our family of certified sustainable brands.”

GreenPeach’s Omega 3 oil is the highest grade available. It is made from fresh wild-caught sardines, mackerel, herring and anchovies. A third-party lab tests the company’s Omega 3 oils for purity and potency. GreenPeach packages and processes its Omega 3 products in an FDA-regulated, ISO 9001-certified facility that is equipped with carbon neutral, geothermal labs. All Omega 3 products are non-GMO.

As a business, GreenPeach is driven by a set of principles that prioritises people over profits. It is known for having a healthy business structure that is supported by and rooted in trust with its customers. “At GreenPeach, we refuse to give in to the supplement industry’s demands for low cost at any price. We value providing a healthier, cleaner product for our families,” explained Feryal Talebdoost CEO. “Our work with Friend of the Sea is representative of this ethos.”
