GC Rieber Oils Expands Production, Enhances Quality


Novel Ingredient Services (West Caldwell, NJ) GC Rieber Oils has continued to upgrade its entire line of premium quality omega-three concentrates.

The line promised to make improvements to ingredient quality, potency and purity; extended shelf life; new and improved omega-three concentrates; and in-demand quality/sustainability certifications. According to the company, the newly-opened manufacturing facility in Kristiansund, Norway, has tripled its omega-3 production.

While GC Rieber’s omega-3 concentrates have always contained fewer environmental contaminants—such as PCBs, dioxins, peroxides, and heavy metals—than allowed by international standards and guidelines, the new production process has reduced trace contaminants to industry minimums and, in some cases, to non-detectable levels. In addition, the shelf life for all GC Rieber Oils omega-3 concentrates has increased to three years.

Jan Roger Bjerkestrand, managing director of GC Rieber Oils, said the company’s specifications have undergone a strict tightening regime. “GC Rieber’s high-potency omega-3 concentrates now have some of the fish oil industry’s lowest oxidation-content and environmental-toxin levels, consistently exceeding industry standards for quality and purity,” said Bjerkestrand.

GC Rieber Oils’ factory upgrades have facilitated both ingredient improvements and line extensions. The company also introduced an even higher potency version of its leading ingredient, VivoMega 70 DHA Ultra, and has continued its commitment to preserving marine habitats, securing certifications from Friend of the Sea and IFFO Global Standard for Responsible Supply, two of the industry’s most respected and rigorous agencies governing sustainable fishery. In addition, all GC Rieber omega-3 concentrates are now halal certified.

GC Rieber’s advances in ingredient quality, purity and stability – coupled with its half-century of experience and expertise – give these Norwegian-refined omega-3 concentrates a significant competitive advantage,according to  Bob Green, chairman of Novel Ingredient Services.

“We are confident that more and more U.S. manufacturers will make the switch to what is one of the safest, premium-quality functional fish oils on the world market today,” said Green.
