Qualitas Health, a provider of premium omega-3 algae oil, has been nominated for a NEXTY award. Sponsored by New Hope Natural Media, the NEXTY recognizes the most innovative players in the natural products industry.

“It is an honor to be nominated for the NEXTY innovation award,” said Dr. Isaac Berzin, founder and Chief Technology Officer of Qualitas Health. “As the only algal omega-3 nominee, Almega PL is a good representative of our innovation and high quality.”

Qualitas Health operates a 350-acre farm southwest of Midland-Odessa, Texas, to grow microalgae for its Almega PL™ omega-3 oil. The farm uses resources efficiently, with a minimal environmental footprint. A natural strain of microalgae is grown outdoors in open, brackish-water ponds, using sunlight and carbon dioxide from local emitters. The process is fresh-water neutral, with harvest occurring daily.

Qualitas was nominated in the “Supplements and Ingredients” category, where it is currently competing against other leading industry players in an online Popular Vote. Between now and May 2, votes can be cast at nextforecast.com/nexty.
