PRESS RELEASE: Springfield Nutraceuticals launches Calanus® Oil in the EU

The Novel Food approval of Calanus® Oil has triggered a massive interest from European dietary supplement brand owners. Peter van Hogerhuis, CEO of Springfield Nutraceuticals in The Netherlands was the first in the European Union to see the great potential of Calanus® Oil.

He announces: “When we discovered Calanus® Oil, we did not need much time to recognize the effects and potential of this special fatty acid product. We concluded the co-operation with Calanus in a very short time. We feel that we can build the awareness of this unique omega-3 product. Our NourSea Calanus® Oil product can hopefully add to the health of many people”.

On May 15th, 2018, Springfield Nutraceuticals launched Calanus® Oil in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, United Kingdom and Germany under the brand name NourSea, referring to their catchword "Nourished by the Sea".

CEO in Calanus Gunnar Rørstad is satisfied, but not surprised, with how Calanus® Oil has been received:

"The results of our research effort on Calanus® Oil are extremely promising, particularly in the metabolic health area, and has led to a big interest from parapharmaceutical companies in the interface between dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals, especially targeting practitioners and pharmacies."

"The innovative mindset of Springfield Nutraceuticals, combined with their serious approach to health promoting products, makes them an ideal partner for us to position Calanus® Oil in their markets," he states.
