Founder Joar Opheim grew up where fish oil is a part of everyday life. When he came to California in the mid-1980s, Joar was unable to find the quality fish oil he relied on to manage his old gymnastic injuries.
Driven by his Norwegian heritage, knowledge of fish oil, and love of science, Joar was inspired to contribute to advancing fish oil quality and industry standards. Guided by his personal mission to bring high quality fish oil to the world, Joar has developed several patented fish oil technologies that include flavouring, taste, delivery, and processing-shaping standards.
