The established and mature omega-3 market continues to grow and innovate to meet changing market demand.

The global fats and oils market is forecasted to grow by 5.2% over the period of 2018 to 2023. Polyunsaturated fats, which includes omega-3s, remain a key driver of the sector. With more growth to come from this established market, there are opportunities for businesses looking to introduce further innovation and variety to the space, especially as consumers actively seek out marine alternatives. With an increase in consumers choosing plant-based diets for personal healthcare, animal welfare and environmental concerns, alternatives like marine algaee, phytoplankton and various nuts and seeds have become popular fatty acid sources.

The state of this market and opportuities for business innovation and application expansion is reflected yearly through the dedicated Omega-3 Resource Centre at Vitafoods Europe, in association with GOED. Additionally, visitors can access a wide range of content and explore how this mature market continues to offer new opportunities around formulation, delivery format and wider product applications. Discover how the market is responding to market demand through product showcases, and meet with omega-3 experts such as U.G.A. Nutraceuticals, KD Nutra, ecoduna and Goerlich Pharma.

Eight featured companies, including Biosearch Life, Epax, POLARIS and Vitux, showcase their expertise in the Omega-3 guide, and highlight new product ranges, technologies, formulation and manufacturing capabilities.
