Built upon a patented emulsion technology and clinically substantiated, Smartfish’s Omega-3-enhanced nutritional drinks and emulsion products complement the fast-growing medical and consumer nutrition markets with products of evidence-based health benefits.

It can also ensure a tasty delivery of nutrients by protecting Omega-3 fatty acids, which are rich in fish oil, from oxidizing and forming the rancid taste. The products are clinically tested, and all health benefit claims for Smartfish products are supported by rigorous science.
Smartfish’s products range provides health nutrition for the elderly and the young, medical nutrition for chronic disease patients, and sports nutrition for athletes. Smartfish has established itself as a trusted nutritional source for professional athletes worldwide being the official supplier of sports nutrition drinks to sports clubs and national teams, which include English Premier League Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club and Norwegian Nordic Combined National Team of Skiing.
Jacobson Pharma’s strategic collaboration with Smartfish also included a shareholding investment of 9.04% of Smartfish’s issued capital made in July 2019, which is expected to forge a stronger partnership and platform for both companies on exploring potential business cooperation in the high growing consumer health nutrition market in the future.
Mr. Derek Sum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Jacobson Pharma, comments, “We welcome Smartfish’s nutrition products with well-documented potency to our consumer health product portfolio.
