Thai Union tuna oil refinery opening ceremony in Rostock, Germany.

Thai Union opems tuna oil refinery plant in Germany

  (THAILAND, 11/15/2018)

Thai Union Group PCL. has successfully commissioned its Thai Union Marine Nutrients tuna oil refinery, located in Rostock, Germany, which produces highly refined tuna oil considered one of the best sources of Omega 3 and DHA.

The Group pointed out that with the launch of this new greenfield plant, valued for USD 24 million, it is now the only refiner of high-grade tuna oil with complete end-to-end supply chain and production management. 


The initial oil extraction is completed at Thai Union’s production facilities in Samut Sakorn, Thailand, before being shipped to Rostock via the port of Hamburg, Germany.

“We are focused on creating a sustainable future for the tuna industry by maximizing and leveraging high-nutrient tuna byproducts. Our pure tuna oil is just our first step in a suite of nutritional innovations from our marine ingredients business,” said Thiraphong Chansiri, CEO at Thai Union.

Thai Union’s marine ingredients arm was setup in 2017 to meet the growing market demand for natural, seafood-derived by-products beneficial to human nutrition, such as marine Omega-3 fatty acids. Marine ingredients focuses on commercializing high-value innovations identified by Thai Union’s cutting-edge Global Innovation Incubator.

At the initial phase, the Thai Union Marine Nutrients plant aims to supply 5,000 metric tons of tuna oil annually, used primarily by manufacturers of nutrient-dense products such as infant formula, dietary supplements, clinical nutrition and functional foods.

“This is the beginning of our sustainable innovation journey – what is left after we extract the oil, we will focus on utilizing all of the nutritional benefits of the tuna, creating highly sustainable and innovative products to benefit human health and nutrition, now and into the future,” added Chansiri.
