FEED MATTERS: RAPESEED
Our award-winning Omega3 pork is the result of 5 years’ extensive research in partnership with selected farmers and Finnish research institutes, including the Natural Resources Institute Finland and University of Helsinki.
We found that carefully enriching pigs’ diets with Brassica napus* seed improves the texture and flavour of the pork, as well as enhancing the level of Omega3 – so we raise our pigs on small, family owned farms and feed them a completely natural diet of GMO-free corn mixed with locally grown rapeseed.

**Brassica napus (Latin name) is commonly known as rapeseed, oilseed rape, or 油菜: (Mandarin Pinyin yóucài; Cantonese: yau choy), and is the crop produced from the fields of bright yellow flowers commonly seen in Nordic countries. Cultivated mainly for its oil-rich seeds, it is one of nature’s best sources of Omega 3.
The addition of rapeseed to our pigs’ feed boosts the amount of essential Omega3 fatty acids in our pork – up to 4 times more compared to conventionally raised meat. In turn, saturated fat is reduced to a level close to white meats like chicken and turkey.
A diet rich in Omega3 and low in saturated fat has been shown to have many health advantages, including a reduced risk of heart disease.
The National Institute for Health and Welfare presented the National Health Award to our parent company, HKScan Finland for its work towards better heart health. One of the criteria was decreasing the amount of saturated fat in the Finnish diet, thanks to Omega3 pork products. (See chart below)

Premium Taste Pork – Tender and Juicy
Every meat lover knows that flavour some fat is what gives meat great taste and texture.
The high quality fat in our pork is distributed throughout the meat, which makes it more tender, tasty and full of the mouth-watering juices that every professional chef or home cook aims to bring to the table.
The consistent quality of our meat means that the best results are always attainable, however many dinners your kitchen serves!
Flodins Omega3 pork can be cooked any way you like – our quality fat marbled meat is quick to prepare and as it stays juicy and tender longer, cooking time is less critical.
Our pork doesn’t only have a better flavour and texture, it is easier to cook with it too, so it is no surprise that many top Nordic chefs choose Omega3 pork for their menus.
