Research, development and quality

A strict quality system

Quality is a vital factor in LYSI's business. Therefore management emphasizes the following principles:

  • To train and educate the company's personnel in order to increase their skills and knowledge.
  • To manufacture quality products that meet the requirements and expectations of customers.
  • To undertake research and product development in order to meet customer needs.
  • To ensure that the company yields reasonable profit allowing for development and progress.

To implement this, management has established a certified quality system conforming to the ISO 9001 international standard. Furthermore, LYSI has extended the scope of the above standard by incorporating special requirements for sanitary measures, work surroundings and premises. These factors are subject to the regulations of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice and Pharmaceutical Production), a prerequisite for obtaining authorization for pharmaceutical production and packaging.

LYSI has also obtained BRC (British Retail Consortium) standard certification.

Research and development

LYSI has been leading in research and product development of marine lipids over the past decades. The link between leadership in research and development on the one hand, and in marketing and sales on the other, is important both for LYSI's management, and for the company's success.

Thanks to a close cooperation with leading international pharmaceutical firms and research organizations, LYSI is commonly regarded as one of the global leaders in the field of marine oils and their utilization. The company also collaborates with the University of Iceland and Matis, the Icelandic Food and Biotech R&D on a continuous basis.
