MEG-3® Goes Mainstream with

Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil to the food and dietary supplement industries, is pleased to announce the launch of their advertising campaign on As an added value to some of their co-branded customers, ONC has provided major exposure on subsequent web pages accessed via the click-thru on the on-line ads.

Ocean Nutrition Canada’s commitment to increasing consumer awareness of the many health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA was the motivating factor for this advertising campaign. Although many consumers are aware of some of the health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA, most still do not eat enough fish, therefore they are deficient in Omega-3 EPA/DHA. Furthermore, most consumers are still not aware of the wide variety of health benefits associated with Omega-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil. Advertising on’s health section, and the Dr. Oz section, was a logical media forum given the power of Oprah, and the statistics of the Oprah website traffic, with over 5 million unique visitors per month and 75 million page views per month. That’s advertising power!

Oprah is a powerhouse, she’s been ranked number one on the list of the world’s top celebrities with 17 million viewers tuning in daily to her daytime talk show. Dr. Oz is a regular on her show, and anyone who watches Oprah has heard him advocate regular consumption of Omega-3, from fish oil for improved health.

“We are excited to be able to launch this campaign on We’re always looking for ways to increase consumer awareness of Omega-3 EPA/DHA, and looking for ways to support our customers. We’re continually working with them to provide marketing support.” Lori Covert, VP of Marketing & Communications continued, “Besides the superior quality of our Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients from fish oil, what sets us apart from our competitors is our unique ability to create additional value for our customers.”

Don Bird, Executive Vice President at W.N. Pharmaceuticals said “We’re really excited to be part of this advertising campaign. We recognize the value of co-branding with the MEG-3® EPA/DHA from fish oil so clients instantly recognize the product as the purest, safest source of Omega-3. Ocean Nutrition Canada’s product, and the support services they offer, make them the leader in the Omega-3 industry.”
