“During last year’s inaugural 2018 tech and music festival, professors and students from the Food Sciences Department at Cal Poly Pomona participated in our panel discussions, and helped make the event a big success. We’re happy to have them back again this year,” says Virun founder Phil Bromley. Bromley said the 2018 tech and music festival marked the launch of Virun’s O3omega™ O3Smoothies, the popular line of algal DHA Omega 3 MCT dietary supplements. (O3smoothies.com)

Bromley says the Nuriv 2019 Music and Tech Festival is intended to help promote the launch of his new company, Nuriv (Virun backward): a partnership of scientists, ingredients manufacturers, and finished product manufacturers that will develop and produce clean, healthy, efficacious CBD products for the dietary supplements, foods and beverage industries utilizing Virun’s technologies and existing patents.

About Algarithm Ingredients: (http://www.algarithm.ca)
Algarithm has omega-3s figured out! Algarithm’s AlphaMega3 algal DHA oil is derived from a strain of wild-crafted microalgae initially discovered and isolated from pristine coastal waters at the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. Providing a minimum of 400mg/g of omega-3 DHA, the algal oil undergoes an environmentally-friendly, chemical-free extraction process to eliminate virtually all traces of taste and odor – making the “beautifully tasteless” oil an ideal ingredient in foods and beverages where manufacturers want the nutritional benefits of plant-derived omega-3 DHA without an underlying marine smell or taste.
