Published: 7-Dec-2023

GC Rieber VivoMega, a leading player in sustainable marine and vegan omega-3 concentrates, is proud to announce that it has received the international V-Label certification

Established in Switzerland in 1996, the internationally recognized vegan and vegetarian trademarked label allows customers to identify plant-based choices easily.

To receive the certification, the product must fit the agency’s specific definition and criteria of a vegan or vegetarian product. According to V-Label, more than 50,000 products from more than 4300 licensees worldwide carry the V-Label.

“We are thrilled to receive this certification for our high-concentration vegan omega-3 from microalgae,” said Ståle Søfting, Sales and Marketing Director, GC Rieber VivoMega.

“This certification further helps validate our efforts to provide a superior product with exceptional purity parameters and optimal sensory profiles. We launched our vegan DHA omega-3 at Expo West this year and received great customer feedback and engagement.”

VivoMega Algae Oil is extracted through its Superlight proprietary technology, allowing for gentle and non-invasive processing. 

Using this specially designed circular reflux system, the oil has very low exposure to heat, is protected from oxidation and includes every relevant fatty acid. The Superlight circular technology also provides optimal resource utilisation with little to zero waste. 

VivoMega Algae Oils fully aligns with the EU Green Deal initiatives and the UN Global Compact guidelines. It also leads the market on its oxidation levels, allowing it to maintain its freshness for 3 years with optimal taste, smell and colour.

This announcement follows VivoMega’s launch of VivoSens, its world-first technology to objectively analyse the components contributing to the taste and smell of omega-3 oils.
