Enzymotec announced that it intends to increase the omega-3 spec in the pure Krill oil 4014F grade to 19%.
Pure Krill Oil+™ is produced by using a proprietary process that produces high levels of Phospholipids, omega-3 and Astaxanthin from pure Krill (Euphasia Superba) bio-mass.
"This is part of our continuous pledge to our customers to provide the highest quality within an optimal costing structure" says Elzaphan Hotam, CEO of Enzymotec USA.
"In light of current events, it is ever so important to state that based on facts obtained from reliable third-parties, Krill harvesting is one of the highest regulated industries having a minimal impact on the environment. Enzymotec supports Krill sustainability and an eco-friendly supply chain aimed to maintain the conservation of marine living resources by sourcing its Krill biomass only from CCAMLR member monitored vessels and facilities," concludes Hotam.
"We are inspecting and verifying that each Krill shipment is harvested within the limits of the zone and dates for which the specific fishing vessels had received its fishing license from CCALMR," says Neta Sheinman, head of the QC department.
CCAMLR is the Commission for the Conservation Marine Living Resources and the only internationally recognized body whose member states monitor Antarctic-krill harvesting to ensure a healthy eco-system in that region.
