Our business idea is to offer branded unique products based on natural astaxanthin and that are supported by scientifically proven health effects. Together with our parent company, Fuji Chemical Industry Cp., Ltd in Japan, we are the world leader in research-based astaxanthin health products.

Natural astaxanthin is produced by the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis in our production facility in Gustavsberg, Sweden. We supply astaxanthin as both water and fat soluble products for use in feed, food and dietary supplements.

All products are developed within the company and protected by patents. Through a network of local distributors, we supply our retail and bulk products globally.
