Company Profile

GOED's roots start in the omega-3 industry's collaboration to petition the US Food and Drug Administration to establish a heart disease risk reduction claim for omega-3s in the year 2000. In 2006, twelve companies involved in that effort joined together to found GOED with a strong mandate to represent all sections of the EPA and DHA market. As of early 2015, GOED has approximately 200 members from around the globe and in all segments of the omega-3 supply chain.

Our vision is to help consumers worldwide reach EPA and DHA omega-3 intake levels optimal for the health conditions they are trying to manage and to have the broadest access possible to these valuable nutrients in foods, supplements, infant formulas, clinical nutrition products, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and other applications that help them reach this goal.

Our mission is to support GOED members who are committed to responsibly developing, sustaining and expanding markets for EPA & DHA omega-3s, while promoting health benefits, supporting public education and safety, establishing ethical business and product quality standards, and advancing government, healthcare and industry relations.
