On December 22, 2015, AstaReal, Inc. received its certificate along with a letter of compliance from NSF, stating AstaReal® L10 (10% oil) is found to be verifiable in accordance with the Non-GMO Project standard. Joe Kuncewitch, National Sales Manager of AstaReal, Inc. said, “This is very exciting, not just for us as a supplier, but also for our customers.

The company, located in Moses Lake, Washington, was established in May of 2014, as the first, fully integrated facility to cultivate Haematococcus pluvialis in the United States.
