Armorica is a small-scale cod liver oil producer based in the UK. We extract oil from cod livers through controlled lacto-fermentation that we have spent many years perfecting. Extracting oil through this technique avoids the use of high temperatures and other damaging conditions. The resulting oil is pure and unadulterated. All the omega-3 fatty acids are triglycerides and all the vitamins are naturally occurring.
We only use Gadus Morhua (also known as Atlantic cod) to produce our oil. The livers of Gadus Morhua are extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins.
All the cod that we use are caught in the North Atlantic and are caught in line with EU and UK sustainable and responsible fishing practices. Cod livers are generally seen as a waste product of cod fillets, particularly with UK fisheries, and so our product doesn’t take an additional toll on the environment. We are extremely conscious of the environmental impact humans have on the world, and do everything we can to minimise our impact, and protect the environment.
We also use recycled/ recyclable/ compostable materials at each stage of our processing. For example, we use wood wool for our protective packaging material.
As a food business in the UK, we must adhere to strict food processing and safety procedures in line with the Food Standards Agency to make sure the product we produce is safe for our consumers. We have all our batches tested by independent laboratories to ensure the product is safe.
