Yes, that's 100 billion - not 100 million!
DARTMOUTH, NS, May 6 /CNW/ - Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), the
world's largest Omega-3 EPA/DHA solutions provider and supplier of
MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients has reached another milestone with
over one hundred billion servings consumed globally.
Omega-3 continues to be one of the most scientifically researched
ingredients in the world with more than 14,000 scientific studies over
the past 35 years. This scientific backing has given consumers
increased awareness and trust in Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients for
improving health. Frost and Sullivan forecasts the global Omega-3
dietary supplement and food ingredients categories will continue
growing in double digits annually until 2015.
One hundred billion servings…that is a lot of zeros, but what does it
mean? One hundred billion servings consumed globally translates into
fifteen servings of MEG-3® for every person on the planet. It means that every day over twenty one
million servings of MEG-3® are consumed across the world. We could keep going, but we think the one hundred billion speaks for
ONC will be celebrating this milestone during the Vitafoods trade show
being held in Geneva, Switzerland from May 10-12th. Stop by ONC stand #618 to see what makes ONC the world's most trusted
supplier of Omega-3 EPA/DHA. For more information on Vitafoods visit: www.vitafoods.eu.com.
Jon Getzinger, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer stated, "This is a huge
milestone for ONC and the MEG-3® brand. This achievement affirms our leadership position in the Omega-3
category and speaks volumes about the quality and purity of MEG-3® ingredients." Getzinger continued, "Consumers are learning about the importance of
Omega-3 EPA/DHA and know that when they pick up a product with MEG-3® on it, they can trust the source™."
We could give you a couple more reasons why consumers trust MEG-3® products, but we'd rather give more than one hundred billion.

Omega-3 is a family of essential fatty acids, including EPA
(eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and ALA
(alpha-linolenic acid). Oily fish (such as sardines, anchovies,
mackerel, and salmon) are the major known natural sources of Omega-3
EPA/DHA. ALA is found in plants, such as flax and chia. Although
Omega-3 EPA/DHA is important to overall good health, the human body is
not able to produce sufficient quantities on its own, so
supplementation is required, either by eating oily fish or foods
fortified with Omega-3 EPA/DHA, or by taking fish oil supplements.
