WHO WE ARE

 

Our team is widely recognised for its great expertise and knowledge of sourcing, selecting and processing fish oils.

OLVEA Fish Oils is a subsidiary of the family-owned OLVEA Group founded in 1929 and located near the picturesque Harbour of Fécamp in Normandy.

The Group has been commercialising fish and cod liver oils since 1929. Over the past ten years, the company gradually stood out on the Omega 3 fish oils market by building a factory in Morocco, OLVEA Atlantic, which includes storage, refining, winterisation and deodorisation units.



OLVEA Fish Oils is proud to be a GOED (Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3) and IFFO (The International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisation) member.

  • Our Uniqueness

    OLVEA Fish Oils is the leading supplier of pelagic Omega-3 fish oils sourced from the Atlantic Ocean, with logistics and commercial hubs in Northern Europe, North Africa, and North America.

    Our presence in France, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and Ivory Coast gives us a leading edge across the industry.

    Our uniqueness relies on the efficiency of our local operations, our networks and our partnerships. We have forged strong strategic alliances in order to meet our customers’ demands.

    Our vertical integration from sustainable sources to fully refined fish oils provides unique solutions for our customers.

  • Our commitments

    Reliability: Sourcing from abroad should not be an adventure: it is all about trust and reliability. We believe that developing close relationships with each and every one of our customers is crucial to understanding their needs.

    Quality: We are fully engaged in ensuring the health, safety and traceability of our oils by guaranteeing an efficient quality management system.

    Sustainability: We are committed to sourcing our fish oils from fishing areas where fish stocks have been monitored and assessed by both the FAO and local research institutes as not being at risk of collapse.

  • Our mission

    OLVEA Fish Oils has located its operations in Africa, specifically in those countries where fish are harvested and processed into Omega 3 fish oils.

    We are engaged in furthering sustainable development not only by respecting local resources, but also by adding real social and economic values to local communities.

    We are committed to investing in solutions to empower the local people.
