Trans-Ocean first company to use MEG-3® in Surimi
Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, is pleased to announce that Trans-Ocean has included the MEG-3® healthy food ingredient in their entire line of Classic Surimi Seafood line. To inform people of the change, Trans-Ocean has updated the packaging with new eye catching graphics and the MEG-3® logo. The products will be available in grocery stores throughout Canada and the United States in the coming month.
Each serving contains 100 mg of EPA/DHA from fish oil. The Classic Surimi Seafood line is fully cooked and ready-to-eat, making them perfect for quick and easy salads, appetizers, and more. The resealable packaging is convenient and keeps the products fresh.
Louis J. Shaheen, VP of Sales and Marketing at Trans-Ocean, said “We wanted a new strategy to further develop our brand so we decided to fortify our Classic Surimi Seafood line with Omega-3 in response to consumers’ increasing interest in heart healthy foods. We chose the MEG-3® ingredient because it is the purest, safest source of Omega-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil. Now, our consumers can enjoy the many heart health benefits of Omega-3 in our Classic Surimi Seafood products.”
Ian Lucas, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at ONC, said “There is such a large Omega-3 dietary deficiency in the Western diet that we were happy to work with Trans-Ocean to offer another food application in the market containing the MEG-3® Omega-3 healthy food ingredient. The Classic Surimi Seafood line, with MEG-3®, offers consumers a quick and easy way to contribute to their daily intake of Omega-3 EPA and DHA.”
