Möller’s Cod Liver Oil certified by ‘Friend of the Sea’
Möller’s Cod Liver Oil was recently certified by the environmental organisation Friend of the Sea indicating that Axellus, which manufactures Möller’s Cod Liver Oil, complies with the organisation's requirements for sustainable fishing and responsible processing throughout the value chain.
Möller’s Cod Liver Oil is made of fresh liver from sustainable stocks of Arctic cod, also known as spawning cod. The fish are caught in the rich fishing grounds off Lofoten and Vesterålen. The production of cod liver oil dates all the way back to the founding of the Peter Möller company in 1854.
"I am proud that Axellus has been certified by Friend of the Sea. We have long experience, and it is important to us to act responsibly at every step in the value chain. This certification confirms that the work we do meets a high standard", reports Shaher Yar Khan, Group Operations Director and COO at Axellus in Oslo.
Friend of the Sea is a non-profit organisation intended to preserve biodiversity in the ocean and to promote sustainable development for the production and sale of marine products. This means that the ocean and biodiversity should be taken into account throughout the value chain.
The certification applies to both Axellus and its subsidiary Denomega, which is working on tasteless, odourless Omega-3 oil for the corporate market.
