Golden Omega products FOS certified
Golden Omega SA has achieved Friend of the Sea certification for its products made from anchovy fish oil.
Golden Omega is a Chilean producer of Omega 3 concentrates and the company’s main source of raw material comes from the anchovy fishery of the North of Chile.
The main shareholder of Golden Omega is Corpesca - the largest fishing company in Chile, which owns 45 vessels that fish in the Southern Pacific. The anchovy stock in the fishing area is not overexploited and vessels are continuously tracked and alerted in case of entering in Marine Protected Areas.
The fleet complies with seasonal closures and if the average size is found to be lower than the minimum, the fishery is momentarily stopped. The purse seine fishing method is highly selective as anchovies represent 98% of the catch.
Claudio Aracena, commercial director of Golden Omega said, "With this new achievement, Golden Omega is today the only producer of Omega 3 concentrates in the world, holding two certifications, IFFO RS CoC and FOS, both related to the use of responsible and sustainable fish resources."
