GOED To Hold Special Webinar on Future Drivers of Omega-3 Category

Webinar To Explain How GOED Projects Will Impact Food and Supplement Companies

The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s, or GOED, announced that it will be holding a special webinar on March 6 and 7 for the omega-3 industry entitled:

“Strategic Initiatives Driving Consumer Demand for EPA and DHA Omega-3 Food and Supplement Products”

The 90-minute webinar is designed to help the omega-3 industry understand how some of the GOED initiatives will positively impact food and supplement companies around the world and to give participants an opportunity to hear directly from the experts leading these initiatives.

GOED has decided to hold the webinar twice in order to allow companies in multiple geographies to participate during normal business hours, and the webinar will be available for download on the GOED website later as well. “This is one of the fastest-growing markets in both the food and supplement sectors because of the strong science supporting EPA and DHA,” said Adam Ismail, Executive Director of GOED, “We broadened access to the webinar because it is important for companies to understand how they can participate in shaping the growth of the market in coming years.”

Featured sessions during the webinar include:

· Dr. Bruce Watkins of Purdue University will introduce the International Omega-3 Learning Consortium and highlight how its activities will drive consumer acceptance of omega-3s

· Dr. Mike Falk of the Life Sciences Research Office will share the implications of a GOED-sponsored workshop in March that assesses the regulatory environment for obtaining RDIs and Daily Values for EPA and DHA

· Hilary Lloyd of Ocean Nutrition Canada and Chair of GOED’s Regulatory Committee will discuss GOED’s leading role in three projects affecting the omega-3 market, including US and European claims initiatives and EU hygiene regulations

Participants can register for the webinar on the GOED website (www.goedomega3.com). The two dates and times the webinar will be held are at 9am Eastern US time on March 6 and at 1pm Eastern US time on March 7.
