We are a small team with a strong background in nutritional sciences and laboratory research. We all have a ‘hands-on’ approach when it comes to our work, regardless of the direction it takes.
When we discovered how extensively cod liver oil is processed and adulterated by modern processing methods, we knew we could do better. We wanted to produce a genuinely healthy and nutrient-rich oil, and we wanted to do it sustainably – 2 things that are increasingly important in our modern world.
So, in early 2010, after a lot of planning and research, we set off to Peterhead, Scotland, to find a fisherman that would land us fresh cod livers, for some practical ‘hands-on’ testing.
Our production methods are primarily based on traditional lacto-fermentation, but there were a number of things we changed to improve the quality of the oil.
Fermentation is a slow process, and there is a whole host of testing needed to ensure the oil meets quality and safety standards, so it took us a few years to produce an oil that we were happy with. Finally, in 2015, we released our first small batch of Fermented Cod Liver Oil Capsules.
We were blown away by how popular it became all over the world, and we soon had to stop production so we could design and build a custom production facility, and scale up production.
Following the completion of our bespoke facility, we got straight back into production. With our increased capacity we were able to produce enough Fermented Cod Liver Oil to release more products, and do even more development.
In 2020 we released our first liquid product, which we flavored with Organic Sicilian Lemon (who thought cod liver oil could actually taste good?). It was amazing to see how well it was received all over the world.
As I update this page in late 2022 our mission and vision haven’t changed. We are still committed to producing a sustainable nutrient-rich oil, and being a force of good in the world.
For every batch of oil we make, we keep some aside for new product development/ testing. We have lots of plans to increase accessibility to our products throughout the world and release new products to help keep you healthy. Watch this space.
