Oceans Omega Joins the Global Fight Against Malnutrition
PARAMUS, N.J., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Oceans Omega is honored to announce its recent award by VMP Nutrition Foundation, to be the exclusive supplier of omega-3s to their products. Oceans Omega’s ingredients will be incorporated into VMP+3, VMP Nutrition Foundation’s nutrient dense, ready-to-use products that are affordable, easily consumable and transportable for distribution specifically to malnourished people worldwide, with an emphasis on children.
VMP has chosen Oceans Omega based on its exceptional omega-3 delivery technology. The manufacturing processes used to incorporate the superior omega-3 technology into the VMP product line were developed by Nutrition Science Labs (NSL), VMP’s food science and nutritional manufacturing partner, a recognized leader in the area of new product development. NSL specializes in introducing innovative products and programs in response to changing science, market needs and consumer preferences. The partnership is preparing shipments to begin fulfilling orders immediately to multiple countries around the world.
“We underwent an extensive selection process to choose partners with shared values and superb ingredients for this important mission,” said Cesar Rodriguez, Founder of VMP Nutrition Foundation. “The combination of Oceans Omega’s elite omega-3 technology and NSL’s scientific manufacturing expertise, allows us to realize our goal of supplying the best possible solution to the crisis of world hunger.”
The VMP+3 product line consists of convenient, tasty and easy-to-consume nutritional gels and liquids for infants, children and adults. These products deliver the most basic building blocks of life: vitamins, minerals, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. The VMP+3 nutritional profile meets a significant amount of the World Health Organization/Food and Agricultural Organization (WHO/FAO) established daily nutritional requirements.
In the coming months, the campaign surrounding this product line will raise awareness and teach the benefits of proper nutrient intake, focusing on infants, children and adults. These highly advanced nutrient gels and liquids are proudly manufactured in the USA.
