Dr. Ronneberg said: “I am looking forward to continuing developing the valuable asset of the complete no taste and no odour Omega-360TM concept. Creating Omega-360TM is not a skill that is learnt overnight. Denomega has many years of experience in fish oil refining, with traces back to 1912. I am proud to take the next step in Denomega’s history, working closely together with the rest of the highly qualified team in our company.”
