Yes, That's 100 Billion - not 100 Million!
DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia, May 6, 2011 - 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 ingredients
has reached another milestone with over one hundred billion servings consumed
Omega-3 continues to be one of the most scientifically researched
ingredients in the world with more than 14,000 scientific studies over the
past 35 years. This scientific backing has given consumers increased
awareness and trust in Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients for improving health.
Frost and Sullivan forecasts the global Omega-3 dietary supplement and food
ingredients categories will continue growing in double digits annually until
One hundred billion servings…that is a lot of zeros, but what does it
mean? One hundred billion servings consumed globally translates into fifteen
servings of MEG-3(R) for every person on the planet. It means that every day
over twenty one million servings of MEG-3(R) are consumed across the world.
We could keep going, but we think the one hundred billion speaks for itself.
ONC will be celebrating this milestone during the Vitafoods trade show
being held in Geneva, Switzerland from May 10-12th. Stop by ONC stand #618 to
see what makes ONC the world's most trusted supplier of Omega-3 EPA/DHA. For

Jon Getzinger, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer stated, "This is a huge
milestone for ONC and the MEG-3(R) brand. This achievement affirms our
leadership position in the Omega-3 category and speaks volumes about the
quality and purity of MEG-3(R) ingredients." Getzinger continued, "Consumers
are learning about the importance of Omega-3 EPA/DHA and know that when they
pick up a product with MEG-3(R) on it, they can trust the source(TM)."
We could give you a couple more reasons why consumers trust MEG-3(R)
products, but we'd rather give more than one hundred billion.

Omega-3 is a family of essential fatty acids, 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. 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.
