About Odd Roar Olsen

I'm Odd Roar Olsen, born and raised in Ballstad, a small fishing village in Northern Norway. On this small Lofoten island, 200 kilometers above the Arctic Circle, Ballstad, home to about 1,000 people, has been the center of fishing and people's livelihood for thousands of years.

When I lived in Istanbul, the lack of access to fresh omega-3 fatty acids became even more important as my wife was expecting our first child. Of course I wanted to do the best for the health and well-being of my wife and child. This personal experience further highlighted the need for a reliable and high-quality omega-3 supplement that meets specific nutritional needs during pregnancy and beyond. For several years I have personally brought omega-3 supplements from Norway to meet our family's needs. As a result of my research and training in the Omega-3 industry, I realized that there is a great demand for a product that meets our needs - fresh and concentrated Norwegian Omega-3, delivered straight to your door!

“Good” was definitely not “good enough” for my children. I wanted the best and freshest.

I found that industry standards fell far short of the standards I wanted to provide for my family. It seemed as if there was a race in the omega-3 industry, a race where cost was at the forefront. So we had to double to quadruple the industry standards to reach the standards that I was used to at Ballstad and that I grew up with.

Each Ballstad capsule had to be custom-made for us. This way I had full control over the entire quality control process, from fish oil production to the finished packaged product. If you choose Ballstad, I guarantee you will experience unique and exceptional quality

Our fish oils are carefully manufactured in one of the best production facilities in the world in western Norway. Using state-of-the-art technology and expertise, we produce our nutritional supplements to the highest standards of quality, purity and freshness.

This awareness led to the founding of Ballstad. We have come together as a team with decades of experience in the production and distribution of omega-3 nutritional supplements. As Ballstad, our goal was to modernize the production chain from catch to final product, without sacrificing quality, purity and freshness.
