From catch to capsule
Aker BioMarine owns and controls the whole supply chain. This means everything happens under our watch and gives you a unique insight into how we operate. Check out the video which explains it all!
It all begins in Antarctica, the cleanest waters on earth. Within approved areas, we harvest krill with our own custom-built krill harvesting vessels, Antarctic Endurance, Saga Sea and Antarctic Sea, and our supply vessel, La Manche. It takes many years of experience and technical know how to navigate and harvest in these rough, unforgiving Antarctic waters.
Our harvesting method
To protect the environment, we developed our own method of harvesting krill, called Eco-Harvesting®. This method almost eliminates the catching of species other than krill, leaving our annual by-catch to swim around in a small bucket.
Our Flexitech Technology
The infrastructure set up on our vessels ensures a steady delivery of krill meal to our warehouse in Montevideo, Uruguay and on to our processing facility in Houston, Texas. Our patented Flexitech technology allows us to extract krill oil in a unique way to minimize processing and preserve the naturally occurring nutrients that benefit human health.
Our dedication to science
The science team at Aker BioMarine is venturing into new territories from skin health and liver health to exploring the effects of krill oil on triathletes and Lupus disease patients. We pride ourselves on exploring all of the potential that krill oil has to offer, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
We are proud to call our customers, our partners. By working closely with some of the best companies in the nutraceuticals market, we can ensure that consumers all around the globe have access to krill oil for their overall health. Our Superba teams care about our customer’s success. We're much more than an ingredient supplier and together, we are building the krill oil category like never before.
