Aker given regulatory approval for Superba krill oil in India

By RJ Whitehead , 04-Sep-2014

Aker BioMarine Antarctic has been given product approval for its Superba krill oil by the Indian regulators. 

The move means that Norway-based Aker product is the first krill oil to have obtained product approval by the Food Safety Standards Authorities of India (FSSAI).

"This new ingredient approval will enable Indian consumers to benefit from omega-3 fatty acids in phospholipid form," said Atul Barman, Aker’s India representative in Mumbai, adding that omega-3 phospholipids are more efficiently incorporated into cell membranes to support heart, brain and joint health.

"This approval represents a key milestone for our entry into India," said Tim de Haas, the company’s vice-president of business development. 

"We feel confident that with our local presence we can successfully support our customers in India. Backed by our success, especially in the US and Australian markets, expanding into the Indian dietary supplement market presents great opportunities for Superba krill oil."
