A manufacturer of specialty oils for dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, food, and personal care products, Nature’s Crops produces oils from the highest quality crops, produced by growers who follow strict management protocols for sustainability and identity preservation.

Nature’s Crops ensures the crops produced are grown, processed, packaged, and delivered in a safe, sustainable, traceable, and cost-competitive manner. The company has operations in Prince Edward Island, Canada and the United Kingdom, with headquarters in North Carolina.

Natures Crops International has also been certified as a Non-GMO “Handler (Processor True North)” under NSF Protocol 454.

The NSF Non-GMO True North certification means that Ahiflower oil complies with all elements of NSF’s Non-GMO True North verification process, which according to the NSF website “incorporates elements from the EU and Vermont GMO labeling requirements and pulls best practice from commonly used leading food safety standards.” Ahiflower oil is the first omega dietary oil to be verified by NSF International .

Greg Cumberford, VP Strategic Initiatives with NCI stated, “Since Ahiflower oil is already in commerce in the USA and EU in food and dietary supplements, it is important that Ahiflower oil comply with a globally meaningful third-party non-GMO verification standard. NSF True North certification achieves this goal and provides assurance to Ahiflower’s licensed brand partners on this point.”

Ahiflower oil is unique among plant-based omega-3-6-9 dietary oils, because it combines the highest- available omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) with beneficial levels of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) in a clean- tasting, sustainable, and fully traceable package. Ahiflower oil is now available from 9 retail brands in the US and EU. Dosing forms range from vegan softgels to liquid oil to chocolate truffles.
