PRESS RELEASE: Bioriginal Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Saskatoon, Canada – September 11, 2013

Bioriginal, the global Omega Solution company, celebrated it’s 20th year of omega innovation on Saturday September 7th with a party for their staff and families, Board of Directors and prominent officials, including Mayor Don Atchison and Minister Don Morgan.

“Twenty years marks a significant milestone for Bioriginal. We began as a small business working solely with local growers, and have since grown to a global company working with partners and suppliers from around the world. We are honored to be able to celebrate and share this occasion with so many of the key people from Saskatchewan and abroad who have helped make Bioriginal the success that it is today” said Joe Vidal, CEO of Bioriginal.

Bioriginal was founded in 1993 in Saskatchewan, Canada and worked directly with growers in the region to produce the company’s first omega ingredient, borage oil. During the years following, Bioriginal expanded, adding new ingredients to their portfolio, entering into new channels and international markets and globally integrating across the supply chain. In 2000, Bioriginal set up their European office in the Netherlands and today Bioriginal has offices and facilities in Canada, the United States, Europe, South America and Asia.

Over the last 20 years, Bioriginal has established itself as a pioneer in the industry, developing proprietary methods and innovative science-based omega solutions with both plant and marine-based omegas. Their secure vertically integrated supply chain is the base for their unique business approach, which combines their scientific, market and industry expertise to anticipate and create market-driven omega products.

“Our industry has evolved and developed significantly over the past 20 years, and there has been substantial global growth and competition. Throughout these changes, we have always remained focused on our primary reason for being in business – contributing to the health and wellbeing of others. This purpose drives everything we do and a big part of what I think makes Bioriginal so unique and positioned for long-term success. We’ve been through our share of ups and downs, but we are in a phase of positive growth and expansion, and I’m excited to be leading this company as we begin our next 20 years of making people’s lives healthier.” said Joe Vidal.
