Riviera Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Florida-based Sancilio & Company has earned a prestigious 2013 Florida Companies to Watch Award in recognition of its distinguished leadership, innovation and impact. Criteria for this award, presented by GrowFL, included demonstrated high performance in the marketplace, or innovative products or processes.
Founded in 2007, Sancilio & Company developed, manufactures and distributes Ocean Blue® omega-3 fatty acid supplements. The brand, introduced earlier this year, is already distributed in more than 19,000 retail locations nationwide including CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens and Winn Dixie.
Under the leadership of acclaimed medical researcher Frederick D. Sancilio, Ph.D., the Ocean Blue® line of omega-3 fatty acid supplements uses its proprietary Advanced Lipid Technology – an industry-leading purification and concentration process – to deliver the purest and most concentrated omega-3 fatty acid products available.
“Receiving this recognition for our work in omega-3 fatty acid scientific research, product development and distribution is exciting and gratifying,” says Sancilio. “Ocean Blue® has tremendous potential to improve wellness in America, and we are proud that it is made here in the USA.”
Sancilio & Company, Inc. is a uniquely research-based biopharmaceutical company that distinguishes itself among many other dietary supplement manufacturers by its status as a registered drug manufacturer with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and with the State of Florida. As such, its facilities are subject to rigorous regulatory and quality inspections, including those for Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), enforced by the FDA. The company’s facility houses its own research, development, laboratory and production facilities.
The company’s recently launched website, http://www.OceanBlueProfessional.com, is the go-to resource for healthcare professionals and consumers on everything related to omega-3 fatty acids.
