Watsonville, CA (July 11, 2006) Nordic Naturals, a leading supplier of omega-3 fish oils and EFA blends in the natural products industry, introduces Nordic Berriesâ¢, a natural multivitamin for children two years and older. With no artificial colorings, flavorings or preservatives, the vegetarian gummy âberriesâ are delicious pectin-based chewables with a âkid-pleasingâ sweet-and-sour taste. Nordic Berriesâ¢ supports healthy growth and development during the early childhood years and make an ideal companion to any of the companyâs fruit-flavored fish oil blends and cod liver oil. The product is allergen-free.
âAs a mother of two, I understand how important it is to know that your childâs multivitamin is 100% natural and great tasting. Nordic Berriesâ¢ delivers the quality youâve come to expect from Nordic Naturals as well as the delicious taste,â says Michele Opheim, President of Nordic Naturals. âGiving our children their essential nutrients is now easy for parents and fun for kids!â
The concept for Nordic Berriesâ¢ was founded on Nordic folklore that says at twilight, trolls gather nutritious cloudberries that grow along the banks of the Fjord waters. Today, Norwegians still prize cloudberries â small orange fruits that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants â for their delicious sweet-and-sour citrus taste. Now, Nordic Naturals has captured this irresistible taste of cloudberries for their premium childrenâs supplement.
Award-winning author and illustrator, Debi Gliori, was commissioned to create the troll artwork for the product. According to Michele, âDebiâs book No Matter What has been a favorite of mine to read to my children and I felt that her gift of creating playful characters with emotional appeal was a perfect fit for fashioning our Nordic trolls.â
Founded by husband-and-wife team Joar and Michele Opheim, Nordic Naturals is the leader in omega-3 fish oils and EFA blends with exceptional taste, freshness, and purity levels. The company offers over 50 different fish oil products and EFA blends, including liquids, capsules, and children's chewables.
