First Supplement Co-branding Deal in Australia
Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, is pleased to announce that YourHealth Group® in Australia has signed a trademark license agreement enabling them to include the MEG-3® brand on their complementary medicines.
In 2005, YourHealth Group® launched enteric coated Omega-3 fish oil, which is directed specifically at cardiovascular health. The product comes in two sizes, 60 and 120 capsules. The product uses the MEG-3® Omega-3 concentrate oil to deliver the highest quality fish oil in an extra strength delivery system. The product has a special enteric coating that allows the one-gram capsule to move through the stomach intact, to be better metabolized in the small intestine. It has better bioavailability and no fishy aftertaste.
The MEG-3® brand was designed to show consumers the product they are purchasing contains the trusted source of fish oil ingredients. Not only does the MEG-3® logo show that the product contains the highest quality fish oil ingredient, it also tells consumers that it has EPA and DHA, the important heart healthy forms of Omega-3.
YourHealth Group®, through their team of 30 experienced Nutritional Medicine doctors, has developed a range of high quality, evidence-based supplements that are used not only by the doctors and practitioners in their clinics, but are also sold through a large network of well-respected pharmacies and health food stores across Australia.
Menno Veeneklaas, Managing Director of YourHealth Group®, said, "We searched the world for suppliers of high quality, high strength Omega-3 fish oils and decided that Ocean Nutrition Canada was the best.” He continued, “We're very proud to carry the MEG-3® logo on our brand and in our marketing communications as it simplifies the quality story we want to tell. It's early days, but the results have been very positive. Our MEG-3® fish oil products are the best sellers in our range."
Kevin Krail, General Manager with ONC Australia, said, “YourHealth® is a well respected company for their supplement products in the medical field. We are glad that YourHealth chose to include MEG-3® on their packaging and communications to show their customers that they are offering the most trusted source of omega-3 fish oil in the industry.”
