Seagarden Cooperates with ArcticSource1 in USA

August 26, 2015

Seagarden AS, the producer of a wide variety of products based on Norwegian seafood, has entered into a distribution agreement for the US market with ArcticSource1 LLC.  The agreement covers high quality protein and nutritional powders based on wild MSC certified cod caught north of the polar circle for the premium supplement and functional food markets.

“ArcticSource1’s focus on the natural nutrition found in cold water fish while minimizing the fishy odour and taste, makes Seagarden’s protein powders a perfect fit with our existing Arctic portfolio,” says Jan Haakonsen, Sales and Marketing Director of ArcticSource1. “I am truly excited about launching Seagarden’s high quality natural protein products at Supply Side West 2015,” he adds.

“Seagarden has since its inception focused on preserving the original nutritional value found in cod and our success is confirmed in an initial pre-clinical trial, says Bernt-Olav Rottingsnes, Managing Director of Seagarden, who continues: Even we were surprised to find that taking one “stick serving” (5 grams) of our cod powder seems to be enough to offer significant health benefits!”

North America is the single largest market for protein powders and Omega-3 rich products. The market trend towards “easy to consume” and combinations of nutritional ingredients requires purer and better quality ingredients. That is why both Seagarden and ArcticSource1 expect rapid acceptance, at leading nutritional companies in the US, of these new products.

Seagarden Group AS was founded 2002 with focus on producing high quality food ingredient based on marine sources from Norway. The three key product lines include fish protein powders, collagen and chitosan. A recent reorganization, capitalization and turn-around, has positioned the company for growth.

ArcticSource1 LLC, founded in 2010 by Jan Haakonsen, has the expressed focus of sales and marketing of marine ingredients from the Nordic region to the USA. The company offering includes a full range of natural Omega-3 products, innovative fish protein products, chitosan and other specialised ingredients from the sea.
