A word from the expert
“The company is born from a passion for sea and health. This is why we decided to create Polaris: a company that makes the valorization of marine lipids rich in Omega-3 possible.”
We have set up distillation processes (purification, concentration and stabilization), as well as enzymatic processes, enabling us to obtain oils with a high EPA & DHA content.
Today, thanks to our research, we are now able to offer oils derived from a new source of Omega-3, which will be a real line of development for the next few years: microalgae.

A bit of history
1994 : A passion
POLARIS is born from a passion for the sea and health. On this basis, the founders chose to valorize the functional lipids Omega-3 EPA/DHA from marine co-products. The R&D work led to a 1st international patent on enzymatic enrichment (or fatty acids concentration).
2005 : QualitySilver®
Polaris developed a unique technological process to protect oils that are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids from oxidation. The patent was registered and gave birth to QualitySilver®
2012 : Omegavie Marine
Polaris continues its development and becomes a manufacturor in France by launching its own high-tech lipochemistry production unit, based in Brittany. The brand "Omegavie marine" is created, aiming for high performance and quality of marine oils
2016 : Omegavie Algae
Always in search of new innovations and thanks to the expertise of its research and development department, Polaris launches into microalgae oils and creates "Omegavie Algae". Or: Wishing to meet the strong demand for a plant based alternative to EPA/DHA Omega-3, it is natural that Polaris turns to sustainable sourced microalgae oils and creates its brand "Omegavie Algae"
2018 : Sensory®
The "Sensory®" concept was born from a reflection on the organoleptic performance of oils and the undesirable taste or smell of fish oils. Sensory guarantees very high organoleptic quality in Omegavie oils , i.e. no impact on the taste or odour of the finished products.
2020 : Innovation and sustainability
In this new decade, Polaris intends to establish its position as an expert in Omega-3 EPA/DHA, innovation and sustainability being at the heart of its development, the company today focuses its research and innovation on the sustainable solutions of tomorrow
