ArcticSource1 Expands Geographical Reach to South America

April 28, 2014

ArcticSource1 will be opening a regional office in Brazil on May 1, 2014. ArticSource1 do Brasil will offer ArticSource1’s current products, as well as introducing other new and exciting Norwegian Omega-3 products to Brazilian consumers.

“We expect it to be a good market for our high quality nutritional products,” says Jan Haakonsen, Sales and Marketing Director of ArcticSource1. “Brazil has a large population that cares about health and beauty and we have a flying start with some existing business.”

“Brazil can be a challenging country to do business in, but with the right partners, local knowledge, product know-how and patience, it has the potential to be very successful,” adds Regional Sales & Marketing Director, Edvard Hag. An expatriated Norwegian living in Brazil, Edvard is already successfully running Omega, a logistics and sales partner for Norwegian exporters to Brazil.

Brazil has a population of 200 million people and is the sixth largest economy in the world. With its fondness for Norwegian Bacalhau, Brazil provides a strong market opportunity for Norwegian marine supplements.

ArcticSource1 LLC was established in 2010 by Omega-3 market professional Jan Haakonsen with the expressed focus on sales and marketing of marine ingredients from the Nordic region to the USA. ArcticSource1 has since expanded its sales to include Europe and Asia. The company offering includes a full range of Omega-3 products, traditional and innovative fish protein products, chitosan and other specialised ingredients from the sea.
