Dropi – Pure Icelandic Cod Liver Oil Extra Virgin
Dropi’s oil is a pure natural Cod liver oil. The texture has a clear yellow and reddish tone without any cloudy appearence at room temperature. When refrigerated, the oil may become cloudy and thicken, due to the presence of natural stearin. It is important to keep in mind, that Dropi cod liver oil is less processed than regular commercially produced cod liver or fish oil. It is cold processed and therefore classified as virgin oil. The vitamins A & D are in their natural state and may therefore vary between seasons. These vitamins are not added to our oil. Omega-3 and other fatty acids are as pure and natural as intended by nature. Small amounts of Rosemary combined with natural vitamin E are added to preserve this delicate oil.
We provide our customers with top quality fish product by using the best gelatin available for our capsule, i.e. fish gelatin which makes the product even more unique as well as a 100% fish product.

Our bottles are made of dark brown glass to protect the oil from light. The cap has protective sealing to prevent leaks and spills. Short bottle neck and small opening to make pouring in teaspoon easy as possible.
Icelandic fisheries are responsible fisheries
The fishing industry is one of the main pillars of the Icelandic economy. Responsible fisheries at the Icelandic fishing grounds are the prerequisite for the Icelandic fishing industry continuing being a solid part of the Icelandic economy and a principal pillar in Iceland’s exports.
Icelanders have structured a fisheries management system to ensure responsible fisheries, focusing on the sustainable utilization of the fish stocks and good treatment of the marine ecosystem. The fisheries management in Iceland is primarily based on extensive research on the fish stocks and the marine ecosystem, decisions made on the conduct of fisheries and allowable catches on the basis of scientific advice, and effective monitoring and enforcement of the fisheries and the total catch. These are the main pillars of the Icelandic fisheries management intended to ensure responsible fisheries and the sustainability of the ocean’s natural resources.
