To make the CodMarine products we are using traditions and knowledge from the generations before us and combining it with the technology of today.
After the CodMarine crude oil has been made on board of the vessels in the CodMarine Fleet, it gets transported to the facilities of Pharma Marine AS, a family-owned company located on the island of Terøy in Ålesund, Norway.
Here, state-of-the-art equipment and years of expertise is combined to purify and optimize the oil according to CodMarine’s extremely high-quality standards.
The result is an oil that we can proudly stand behind, an oil that encapsulates years of traditions, an oil that is made with the utmost respect for the environment and an oil designed to safely deliver the health benefits of these valuable Omega 3 fatty acids.
CodMarine Fleet - Nothing goes to waste!
The making of this high quality CodMarine oil starts already at the vessels in the CodMarine Fleet. They catch the wild arctic cod and within 6 hours, the fish is divided into what is going to filet production and what is used to make the CodMarine crude oil and fish meal.
Nothing goes to waste as CodMarine is made using material that is not used in filet production and that would otherwise be discarded.
To protect the oil against oxidation it is protected with nitrogen through the whole process from the crude oil is made until the finished product.
Pharma Marine: State of the art, family owned and eco-friendly
It is at Pharma Marine’s facilities at Terøy on the West coast of Norway that the crude cod oil continues its journey. The processing plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and like every aspect of Pharma Marine operations, the plant was designed to minimize the impact of its operation on the environment. For example, sea water is used to cool down the reactors, unutilized oil fractions are used as a source of energy to heat up the facility and everything is done to reduce waste.
The team at Pharma Marine™ consists of experienced and well educated people. They have their own R&D department with pilot equipment and analytical instruments. They also have a sophisticated quality control lab with the latest technologies and they continuously work with optimization of processes and technologies to assure CodMarine premium quality.
Purification: 100% Safe
The crude cod oil is purified to remove heavy metals and environmental pollutants. Each lot of CodMarine oil is guaranteed to comply with extremely rigorous standards when it comes to environmental pollutants ensuring that the benefits of CodMarine oil can be enjoyed in complete safety.
Refining: Quality you can rely on!
CodMarine oil goes through several refining steps to make sure that every single CodMarine product consistently delivers on its promises and meets consumers’ expectations.
Deodorization: Quality you can taste!
Every lot of CodMarine oil is deodorized. This process, along with a constant attention to the oxidative parameters during the manufacturing process prevents the occurrence of bad smell and fishy burps often associated with poor quality fish oil.
