Manufactured by Laboratoires Yves Ponroy, in partnership with Aker BioMarine, Huile de Krill Excellium took home this year’s Omega-3 Product of the Year prize at the NutraIngredients awards.
Beating out strong competition from the other three shortlisted finalists, the award recognizes the most innovative, effective and commercially successful supplements, foods or beverages, containing omega-3 as their core ingredient.
Commenting on the award, Matts Johansen at Aker BioMarine said, “To have a product, which is manufactured with our krill oil, recognized by NutraIngredients as the very best of an incredibly impressive bunch is frankly unbelievable. Our partners Laboratoires Yves Ponroy do an absolutely phenomenal job packaging, marketing and delivering the product to a health-conscious and demanding customer base.”
Judged on a long list of criteria, along with brand recognition, commercial success and packaging, all products needed to provide evidence of their effectiveness and proof that they have no impact on bioavailability.
Recognizing genuine innovation and cutting-edge research in healthy foods, supplements and nutrition, the award ceremony was held in Geneva, to coincide with Vitafoods Europe tradeshow.
The annual awards are organized by NutraIngredients.com, the leading news site for the functional food and beverage and dietary supplement industries.
