Family owned & operated since 1989
“America’s best-selling Omega-3 supplement brands”
The Barlean’s story began in the early 1970, when the family patriarch Dave Barlean quit his job as a pipe fitter and decided to become a full time fisherman. In 1989 son Bruce Barlean became interested in a different source of omega-3-fatty acids- Flax oil. Dave, ever the hands-on innovator, put his mind to work developing a better process; and a family business was born. Using the same proven principles of freshness and direct distribution, Barlean’s Organic Oils began to grow and thrive. Barlean’s are committed to staying ahead of the innovation curve by providing the absolute highest quality. Today, Barlean’s employs nearly 200 people and is known throughout the natural foods sector and beyond for unparalleled product quality and award-winning customer service and satisfaction. Truly family-owned and operated by Bruce Barlean and his parents continue to run the company.
