Our focus is on developing strategic alliances and partnerships that help maintain our competitive edge and our lead position in the global marketplace.

Bioriginal was built on science, and continues to be a leader in EFA research. Our R&D team works closely with the scientific community, staying abreast of the latest research and participating in clinical trials. Our entire process actually begins in our growers fields, utilizing the knowledge and experience of our agronomists to ensure that only the best seeds advance into Bioriginals EFA products. Our specialized Bio-Elite quality assurance process allows us to monitor production and quality to guarantee the safety, security and reliability of our products. Bioriginal has a sophisticated enterprise resource management system that ensures product traceability, and is registered with the FDA in compliance with the U.S. Bioterrorism Act.

Bioriginal was one the first companies in Canada to receive a site license from the Natural Health Products Directorate, certifying that our products are manufactured, packaged, and labeled according to GMP regulations. In addition to this certification, Bioriginal will continue to manufacture in compliance with the more stringent pharmaceutical-level GMPs. We offer organic products certified by Quality Assurance International (QAI), and endorsed as Kosher and Pareve. Bioriginal adheres to Proposition 65 standards, is certified by the USDA for organic production, ensures our fish oils are certified to be CRN compliant, and offers DSHEA compliant products. In addition, our oils are non-GMO and meet WHO Codex standards for edible oil safety. We test for pesticides and other contaminants and provide a Certificate of Analysis with every shipment. We have patents pending for proprietary manufacturing methods, as well as proprietary plant strains.

Bioriginal has also received the 2003 ABEX Business of the Year Award as well as the ABEX Export Award. The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerces ABEX Awards honor outstanding achievements in business excellence. We were also named a Canadian Innovation Leader by the National Research Council in 2003, and presented with an ABEX Award for New Saskatchewan Product for the development of a new product process in 2002.
