Omega-3 Refinery

SeaDragon’s new Omega-3 oil refinery was fully commissioned in 2016. The state-of-the-art facility, built with industry-leading refining technology, has the capacity to produce 5,000 tonnes of Omega-3 oil each year. It is a highly flexible plant offering customers continuous process refining and quick-turnaround batch processing runs. These capabilities set SeaDragon apart from mass-scale refiners’ processing capabilities and allow the flexibilty to meet the demands of bioactive ingredients brokers and fortified food manufacturers.

The plant has the certifications necessary to export products to key target markets including Australia, many Asian markets including China and Japan, the European Union, the US and Canada as well as independently-audited chain of custody quarantine certifications.

Boutique Refinery

SeaDragon is fortunate to have a boutique refinery to produce smaller volumes of specialised Omega-3 products tailored for the most exacting standards.

Refinery Accreditations

Our facilities operated to international best practice standards and independently audited. We are FSSC22000 accredited, and Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) certified as an approved Transitional Facility with Risk Management Programmes. Sustainability and market access certifications are maintained through Friend of the Sea (FoS), Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), halal and kosher certifications.

Safe Quality Manufacture

SeaDragon delivers the highest standards of safety and quality assurance in its product manufacturing.

In New Zealand, the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) provides a food regulatory programme that covers food produced and consumed domestically as well as imports and exports of food products. This system is very highly regarded internationally and is recognised by the US and EU seafood sector authorities as meeting or exceeding their requirements.

SeaDragon also operates a Risk Management Program (RMP) that is audited by the MPI, monitoring the quality of raw materials and finished product. SeaDragon’s RMP covers all aspects of the system, including maintenance, compliance, production and hazard identification.

SeaDragon also has a quality assessment system which dictates that testing is required for every batch produced, set a higher level than MPI requirements. A Certificate of Analysis is provided with each batch of product sold, giving customers complete assurance of the quality and safety of SeaDragon’s products.
