ONC Receives Approval & Signs Agreement
Health Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, has approved Ocean Nutrition Canada (ONC) (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) MEG-3 brand omega 3 (EPA and DHA) for use in a broader range of foods by expanding the scope of its Novel Food Application. The ap­proval also increased the amount of EPA and DHA from 50 mg to 100 mg per food serving.
In other developments, ONC has signed a trademark license agreement with Good Foods Enterprises to co-brand with MEG-3 in the launch of Mr. Cookie. Mr. Cookie with MEG-3 will be available in elementary schools around Ontario as part of the school lunch program. Mr. Cookie is a 4-in. wide, individually wrapped cookie that comes in three flavors: Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate. Each nut-free, trans fat free cookie contains 25 mg of MEG-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil.
