Germany and Israel have emerged as the key innovation hubs of the omega 3 ingredients industry. In Germany, the industry is driven by the joint venture of Royal DSM and Evonik in March 8, 2017, for omega 3 fatty acid products from natural marine algae for animal nutrition. This innovation will enable the production of omega 3 fatty acids for animal nutrition without using fish oil.
