10 years fighting

for fish-free omega-3


Testa did not start advocating fish-free omega-3 yesterday. Our founders Guido and Martin already started the fight against unnecessary fishing for omega-3 over ten years ago. We have since become market leader in the Netherlands and the team has expanded considerably to spread our healthy and fish-free message all over the world, like an algae oil slick

How it all started

In 2005, employed by a large producer of baby food, Guido Evers researched the added value of omega-3 fatty acids for the development of children. That study showed that fish oil was not suitable for baby food, because it was too contaminated and the quality was not consistent enough. He came into contact with algae as ‘the source of omega-3’. Everything fell into place for him when it turned out that algae oil is better than fish oil in many ways: Algae oil is richer in omega-3, so you need less. Algae are grown on land, so no ocean pollution with heavy metals and other toxic substances. And by extracting omega-3 from algae, there is no need to catch fish. That’s where the biggest gain is.

No unnecessary fishing

More than 90 million kilos of fish are caught in the world every year. Overfishing threatens our oceans. The entire ecosystem becomes unbalanced as a result of this overfishing of the food chain. With disastrous consequences for people and planet. Currently, about 25% of the worldwide fish catch is used to extract essential omega-3 fatty acids. Together with Martin de Vries, producer of various supplement brands, he sees the answer to this flaw in the system in algae oil. After much development and with the support of the VNO-NCW Biodiversity, Ecosystems & Economy platform, the first Testa Omega-3 product was launched in 2011.

plant-based omega-3

As a brand with a mission, Testa has now become market leader in the Netherlands. In addition to a replacement for fish oil, a replacement for krill oil has also been developed. Vrill contains all the goodness of krill, extracted from algae oil. Efforts are also being made to develop other fish-free food products from vegetable sources.
