Chinese manufacturer, Shandong Yuwang Pharmaceutical, has obtained Friend of the Sea certification for its refined fish oil and softgel.

The oil comes from Engraulis ringens, also known as the Peruvian anchoveta, and is high in Omega-3. It is sourced from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation’s area 87 in the southeast Pacific and meets the Friend of the Sea’s standard for sustainable fishing, including good management, selective fishing gears and social responsibility.

Albert Ho, business manager at Shandong Yuwang Pharmaceutical said: “We decided to join the Friend of the Sea project because we are eager to give our contribution in conserving the marine habitats and protecting them for future generations.”

Shandong Yuwang Pharmaceutical, which processes 20,00 tonnes of crude fish oil and produces 10,000 tonnes of refined fish oil, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of refined fish oil, exporting to markets in America and Europe.

Paolo Bray, founder and director of Friend of the Sea, said: “The approval of Shandong Yuwang Pharmaceutical as a Friend of the Sea certified company consolidates the presence of our certification in China and is the confirmation that more and more fish oil manufacturers are committed towards environmental sustainability.”
