Exclusive distributor of Epax fish oils in France, Spain and Portugal embraces protection of marine environment.

Seanova, the exclusive distributor of Epax® fish oils in France, Spain and Portugal, has earned certification for sustainable production by Friend of the Sea. Friend of the Sea is the preeminent certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment. With this certification, Seanova can display the Friend of the Sea eco-label on its Epax“ products.

“Seanova has made environmentalism a core part of its brand,” said Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea. “This is a wise and forward-looking approach to the market, one that we think will be richly rewarded by consumers who are increasingly aware of sustainability in the products they buy.”

Located in Pleuven, France, the heart of a region facing the Atlantic Ocean, the 17-person company offers a range of natural ingredients, offering real health and nutritional benefits for humans and animals. Seanova sought the Friend of the Sea certification because it was concerned about making the most of marine wealth without depriving itself of the benefits it offers. The company is renowned for traveling the world in search of marine ingredients of interest that meet precise specifications in terms of efficiency, innovation and respect for the environment.

Seanova is now certifying all Epax® fish oils under Friend of the Sea to ensure high quality and purity. “The Friend of the Sea certification allows us to guarantee our customers healthy ingredients that comply with environmental and social standards as well as good practices for sustainable fishing,” a spokesperson for Seanova said.
