DARTMOUTH, N.S. — Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd. has invested $19 million to expand its molecular distillation plant in Mulgrave, N.S., which is increasing capacity for omega-3 fatty acid concentrate for its Meg-3 ingredient by 100%, the company said Oct. 20. The move has secured ONC’s position as the largest fish oil manufacturer in the world, according to the company.

The investment in Nova Scotia follows a joint venture with Alicorp Corp. in Peru announced last year that led to the construction of a second fish oil manufacturing plant.
