Makers of Arawana Brand Cooking oil Bring a Healthier Product to Their Consumers

DARTMOUTH, Canada, December 14, 2010 - Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), the
world's largest Omega-3 EPA/DHA solutions provider, and supplier of MEG-3(R)
brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid/docosahexaenoic acid)
ingredients, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an exclusive
long term strategic agreement with Wilmar International Limited (Wilmar),
based in Singapore. Wilmar is Asia's leading agribusiness, and a global
leader in Omega-3 foods. The collaboration between these two market giants
has resulted in the launch of Wilmar's new Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil
containing MEG-3(R) fish oil.

Ocean Nutrition Canada congratulates Wilmar on the exciting launch of
Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil, which offers the added health benefits of
Omega-3 EPA/DHA from the most trusted source - MEG-3(R) fish oil. According
to a national survey conducted by the Ministry of Health of the People's
Republic of China
, the average daily intake of EPA/DHA of Chinese residents
is only 37.6 mg/day. This daily intake is less than 25% of the EPA/DHA level
accepted by the United States Institute of Medicine (IOM), and less than 10%
of the intake recommended by the International Society for the Study of Fatty
Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL). Due to this deficiency in the Chinese diet,
Wilmar, in association with the Chinese Nutrition Society (CNS), is launching
Arawana blended oil enriched with MEG-3(R) fish oil. Arawana 3A+ premium
cooking oil is a blended vegetable oil product that contains sufficient
Omega-3 to help Chinese consumers meet IOM Omega-3 intake recommendations.
EPA and DHA are important nutrients that help support and maintain the normal
function of the brain, heart, and body. The product is widely distributed in
China and is available at supermarkets and traditional markets throughout the

In 2009, Arawana brand cooking oil was recognized by the World Brand
Laboratory as one of "China's 500 Most Valuable Brands". Adding the goodness
of EPA/DHA into a well-established Chinese household staple is a progressive
decision for the market leader. This innovative application enables Chinese
consumers to conveniently supplement their everyday diets with healthy
Omega-3 EPA/DHA everyday in a convenient way.

"Partnering with Ocean Nutrition Canada is strategically important
because they offer not only the most highly trusted source of Omega-3
EPA/DHA, but also superior service, and on-going support. We continue to
invest and expand our manufacturing and distribution infrastructure, and this
alliance is a significant long-term exciting endeavour for both parties,"
said Mr. Lee, Chairman of Yihai Kerry Foodstuffs Marketing Co., Limited, a
wholly owned subsidiary of Wilmar International.

Martin Jamieson, President and CEO of Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited,
said, "We are thrilled to partner with Wilmar International, one of the
world's great food companies." Jamieson continued, "Ranking 300th in Fortune
Magazine's 2009 Fortune Global 500 companies, speaks volumes of Wilmar's
significance to the global food industry. Not only do they offer superior
products, Wilmar management and staff are dedicated and innovative. We look
forward to what the future holds in this partnership - providing consumers
with healthy, high-quality products."

About Omega-3:

Omega-3 is a family of essential fatty acids (EFA), including EPA
(eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and ALA (alpha-linolenic
acid). Oily fish (such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and salmon) are the
major known natural sources of Omega-3 EPA/DHA. ALA is found in plants, such
as flax and chia. It is important to note that EPA and DHA are the primary
contributors of the many health benefits associated with Omega-3. While the
body can convert ALA into EPA/DHA, it does so very inefficiently (typically
less than one percent), making it difficult to derive Omega-3-related health
benefits from plant-sourced ALA. Furthermore, although Omega-3 EPA/DHA is
important to overall good health, the human body is not able to produce
sufficient quantities on its own, so supplementation is required, either by
eating oily fish or foods fortified with Omega-3 EPA/DHA, or by taking fish
oil supplements. Learn more about the health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA at
