The sessions, entitled Smart Sourcing of Omega-3 Marine Oil: A Technical Discussion will take place at Supply Side West on Wednesday November 11th from 10:00 -10:50 AM in Casanova room 601 at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, NV.

Omega-3 is one of the bright stars in the dietary supplement market, and as research continues to confirm its benefits, sales are projected to stay strong. With high demand for raw material, more players are emerging with product to sell. Historically with popular ingredients, this is the stage at which sourcing quality becomes more challenging. At the same time, manufacturing capabilities and technical advances are increasing the options in Omega-3 ingredients. This presentation will bring together companies that make different types of Omega-3 ingredients, who will cover some options available for a variety of applications, with a buyer for a finished products manufacturer who has experience with good and bad ingredient purchases.

The session will be moderated by Adam Ismail, executive director, Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED).
