Norwegian Value Chain

Denomega guarantees sustainability at all steps in our value chain. Denomega has full traceability for our cod liver oil, as we can track the oil used in every batch number all the way back to when the fish are caught.

Denomega’s Cod Liver Oil comes from wild Norwegian cod (Skrei) caught in Lofoten and Vesterålen, on the arctic coast of Norway. This is where you find the world’s purest seas.

The liver of the wild Norwegian Arctic cod is excellent raw material due to the size of the liver and its richness in omega-3 essential fatty acids (DHA and EPA) and vitamin D. The cod migrates from the Barents sea to spawn in the waters by Lofoten and Vesterålen. The fishing season is from January to April, when the cod is caught by local fishermen.

The cod is delivered daily to the local fisheries in Lofoten and Vesterålen and processed within 24 hours. The unique quality of the raw material is preserved by world-class processing and quality assurance at all stages in the value chain.

The Norwegian Arctic Cod is rated as the best managed cod species in the world.

Denomega is an active member of GOED and IFFO (International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organization)
