Carlson Labs, an importer of high-quality Norwegian fish oils since 1982, announces the opening of Carlson Healthy Oils, a new bottling facility in Norway. Carlson was founded in 1965 with a commitment to produce fresh, pure, potent and natural nutritional supplements.
Carlson has always closely managed its omega-3 fish oils from sea to store, sourcing sustainable, cold-water fish and processing them with molecular distillation. Its oils are nitrogen- or argon-flushed throughout the entire bottling process to prevent oxidation.
"At Carlson, we understand the importance of freshness when it comes to omega-3s," says Carlson President Carilyn Anderson. "That’s one of the reasons we’ve always bottled our liquid fish oils in Norway. Our new bottling facility allows us additional control over the quality of our omega-3 oils and gives us even more opportunity to create new, innovative—and healthy—products for our customers."
Carlson Healthy Oils’ state-of-the-art facility is certified by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and located near Ålesund, Norway, one of the busiest fishing harbors in the North Atlantic—ensuring that only the finest, freshest fish oils are delivered to the Carlson Norway location for refining, distillation and bottling. The bottled oils will then be transported to Carlson world headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois, for shipment to retail locations across the globe.
"Fish oil is one of the most important nutritional supplements we can take," Anderson said. "We’re proud to provide consumers with the highest quality, professional-strength omega-3s in award-winning liquid and soft gel forms."
