OUR Products

It all starts with the oil: Life-sustaining bioactive compounds from the sea.

We are targeting the production of Omega-3 bioactive compounds from three species: Tuna; Hoki and marine-farmed Salmon. Each of our target markets has specific requirements for traceability through the supply chain from fishing vessels forward.

Omega Oils Derived from the sea

Omega-3s, EPA and DHA, are essential fatty acids abundant in fish and some shellfish. Their consumption, according to GOED, the global Omega-3 trade organisation, supports cardiovascular, eye and brain health. The health benefits of Omega-3s are supported by a vast body of scientific literature that includes more than 24,000 scientific papers and 2,700 randomised, controlled trials in humans.

Omega-3 bioactive compounds

We are targeting the production of Omega-3 bioactive compounds from three species: Tuna; Hoki and marine-farmed Salmon. Each of our target markets has specific requirements for traceability through the supply chain from fishing vessels forward.

We manufacture our Omega-3 products in accordance with GOED (Global Organization for EPA and DHA), setting product standards higher than any single regulatory regime in the world.

Our finished, refined Omega-3 and Omega- 2 oils are tested by independent accredited laboratories that use internationally-agreed methodologies, evaluating for total Omega-3 EPA and DHA, Omega-2 content as well ensuring that all products meet standards for contaminant levels.

Our Customers

We are focusing on three core sets of customers: refiners; fortified food manufacturers and ingredient suppliers and brand sponsors. We expect all will turn to SeaDragon because we provide the assurance of an internationally-recognised food safety and quality regime, independently-audited chain of custody certification, a reputation for excellence in refining marine bioactive compounds and a strong and growing network of crude oil supply relationships.

Brand sponsors: The demands of brand sponsor customers, which include our cornerstone shareholder, global health products company Comvita, will be met by the boutique processing capabilities we are developing. Here we expect to develop the capacity to produce batches of unique oils and other bioactive compounds that will allow customers to exploit lucrative niches in branded Omega-3 and bioactive markets.

Fortified food manufacturers: Leveraging the capabilities of the new refinery and the planned specialised small-batch facilities we will develop at our boutique plant, we expect to supply these customers with oils ranging from foreign-sourced Omega-3 oils through to Omega-3 concentrates and domestically-sourced oil from sustainably-managed fish stocks.

Refiners: We expect to supply these customers primarily with refined Omega-3 tuna oils. These customers value the flexibility and agility of SeaDragon’s new refinery, which complements their larger mega-scale refineries. We can provide quick turnaround industrial-scale runs and provide toll processing of their crude oils.
