The Orivo certification assuringTRUST & TRANSPARENCY
The world´s first Orivo-certified producer of Norwegian cod liver oil
PROVIDING EVIDENCE-BASED TRANSPARENCY TO THE OMEGA-3 INDUSTRY
ORIVO is providing the world´s first and only origin certification of omega-3 products based on laboratory testing. Located in Molde, Norway, the company has been providing evidence-based transparency to the omega-3 industry since 2014, and uses a methodology that represents a new level of third-party ingredient verification. Through ORIVO´s unique fingerprinting technology, Vesteraalens omega-3 products are verified and certified as single species cod from Norway, communicated through an ORIVO origin logo on the product packaging.
WHY VERIFY THE ORIGIN?
- Consumers want to know what they are consuming and are demanding full transparency around the sources of omega-3 products.
- Evidence-based transparency represents a great differentiation point. The omega-3 brands that are able to offer this will have stronger story to tell their consumers.
THE ORIVO LOGO FOR THE BRANDS
ORIVO offers brands using Vesteraalens´ ingredients the possibility to enter the certification program and use the logo in their product label of their omega-3 supplement. This way brands are able to offer to their consumers a cod liver oil product with this revolutionary origin guarantee.
Assuring Trust and Transparency with
THE ORIVO CERTIFICATE
The most unique feature of our oils is that they are made purely from the livers of Gadus morhua, and thereby differentiated from competitive products so called “cod oils / cod body oils” made from the livers of different fish species from the cod fish family (Gadidae) or made from all kinds of body parts (“trimmings of food production of wild-caught Arctic Cod, Saithe and Haddock”).

THE ORIVO CERTIFICATION PROCESS FOR VESTERAALENS/PRODUCERS
To ensure the authenticity of fish oils, ORIVO has developed a sophisticated process which makes it possible to verify the source (species) and origin (geography) of both bulk products and consumer ready omega-3 supplements.
THE REVOLUTIONARY ORIVO TECHNOLOGY
Founded on more than two decades of research, the laboratory technique utilised by ORIVO is a fingerprinting technology based on NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) spectroscopy. Identification of analysed products is performed by matching their “chemical fingerprints” ORIVO´s unique fingerprint database of reference samples.
