EPAX AS, a leading global supplier of marine-derived EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids, was recognized as a Top Supplier of 2008 by the global drug delivery and specialty pharmaceutical company Banner Pharmacaps, Inc., High Point, North Carolina for producing top-quality oils and providing Banner with superior on-time deliveries. The "Partners in Success" concept works to further strengthen the partnership between Banner and its top suppliers through shared values.

"We are honoured that Banner has again recognized our commitment to providing them with on-time delivery of top-quality, pure omega-3 concentrates," says Thomas Gulbrandsen, sales and marketing director at EPAX AS. "Banner is a valued customer of EPAX and a natural products industry leader. This award, and what it stands for, is important to EPAX and is an example of the priority we place on working closely with our customers. We are very proud to have a positive impact on Banner’s business."
EPAX earned the same recognition from Banner in 2007 for timely delivery and high-quality omega-3 ingredient supplies.
To celebrate this event, Banner will be hosting the 2nd Annual Supplier Recognition Day on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, at its World Headquarters in North Carolina where EPAX will be recognized.
