Cod liver oil is crafted using an ancient extraction method, a technique which was mastered over 1,000 years ago by the early Viking settlers in Iceland. The fresh cod liver is cold processed to maintain its natural properties, and to preserve the natural state of the essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Vitamin A and Vitamin D.
Our pure Icelandic cod liver oil is made exclusively from fresh cod, caught and processed in a small Icelandic fishing village named Bolungarvík. The fishermen bring in the fresh wild cod daily from the clean seas of the North Atlantic Ocean just outside the Westfjords in northwest Iceland. Here it is processed immediately, only a few meters away from the local fish market.
The Westfjords are a large peninsula in north western Iceland characterised by deep fjords, steep mountains, fantastic birdlife, clean air and rich fishing grounds. Bolungarvík is located approximately 14 kilometres from Ísfjörður at the Westfjords peninsula, and is known as the oldest fishing community in Iceland.
