All bottles of Möller’s cod liver oil will carry the blue fish label as a credible mark of sustainability and traceability.

Orkla Health Further Strengthens its Commitment to Sustainability with the Blue MSC Label

  (NORWAY, 3/7/2019)

Orkla Health, Norway’s leading cod liver oil producer, will display the Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) blue fish label on all bottles of cod liver oil sold under its internationally renowned Möller’s brand. Throughout 2019, more than 5 million bottles of Möller’s cod liver oil bearing the blue MSC label will be rolled out globally.

The challenge of overfishing is substantial and Orkla truly believes in the positive changes driven by the MSC program. Orkla aims to have 100% raw materials from sustainable sources by 2025.

Strict quality control Möller’s is produced at the company's own factory in Norway, where they have strict quality controls.

Research by insights and strategy consultancy, GlobeScan shows that health-conscious consumers are increasingly looking for sustainably sourced seafood alternatives. A survey of 2,800 consumers of health supplements and fish oil across seven markets* showed that 46% put overfishing and the depletion of fish species within their top three concerns for oceans, wildlife and people – second only to ocean pollution (64%). The most preferred way for this group to source information about sustainable fish and seafood is on seafood packaging (58%), followed by TV/radio articles (52%). 72% of those aware of the MSC label have a high level of trust in the MSC.

Hege Holter Brekke, CEO at Orkla Health said: “The MSC plays an important role in contributing to sustainable fishing practices. Adding the blue MSC label to all bottles of Möller’s gives us the opportunity to proudly tell the story of sustainability and provenance of this 160-year old brand. Möller’s is the original Norwegian liquid omega-3 based on Arctic cod liver oil developed with passion and knowledge by pharmacist Peter Möller in 1854.”

 
Norway North East Arctic cod fishery

Möller’s has been sourced from Norwegian cod fisheries in the archipelago Lofoten and Vesterålen since 1854 and is a bi-product from the Arctic cod. First MSC certified in 2010, the Norway North East Arctic cod fishery was recertified in 2015, meaning that it meets all 28 indicators set out in the MSC’s standard for sustainable fishing.

Nicolas Guichoux, Chief Program Officer, at the MSC said: “We commend Orkla Health for its commitment to communicating the sustainability of Möller’s with the globally recognised MSC blue fish label. The number of MSC labelled fish oil products available globally has doubled in the last five years as brands seek to appeal to more environmentally conscious consumers. We hope that other supplement producers will follow their lead by committing to use traceable, certified sustainable fish oil from fisheries helping to safeguard our oceans and seafood supplies for future generations.”

Sales of Möller’s have increased by approximately 60% between 2008 and 2018.  The brand is currently available in more than 20 European and Asian markets.
