Venice, FL (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Physician-directed Omega3 Innovations has been on a roll for the last three quarters, says company co-founder Dr. Bo Martinsen.
“In the last year, we’ve been increasingly recognized as a leading innovator of fresh omega-3 and whole food products,” said Martinsen. He notes that Omega3 Innovations was nominated as a Company to Watch in Florida and for Small Business of the Year in Sarasota last spring. In addition, the company was a finalist for the STEMsmart Innovation Award in September.
Most recently, the biotech company won the international SupplySide Editor’s Choice Award in the omega-3 category. The chocolate-covered Omega Heaven® cookie beat out omega-3 industry heavyweights Nordic Naturals and Nutrigold.
“Being a finalist for the Bright House Awards is the latest in a series of positive events for our company,” said fellow Omega3 Innovations co-founder, Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers. “We are proud to say that Sarasota County is home to the freshest fish oil in the world.”
Chalmers stated that for this regional business award, Omega3 Innovations will be competing with businesses from Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Manatee and Sarasota counties.
Sponsored by Bright House Networks, the Bright House Regional Business Awards will award prizes totaling over $1 million in the form of TV promotion, news stories and cash. The winning businesses will be announced on February 27th, 2014 at the awards ceremony to be held at the Hilton Tampa Downtown.
