The History of Icelandic Fish Oil Production
The first Icelandic fish oil production was established in 1938 by TryggviOlafsson and his brother Thordur, in response to a general need for vitamins A and D. From 1938 to 1950 Iceland exported a large share of its production to the Upjohn company in the USA, which extracted vitamins as a benchmark, testing ground and research site for the company.
It all started with a telegram from E.C. Wise from the Upjohn Company in Michigan, USA in 1936. The telegram was to TryggviOlafsson, asking if any cod liver oil was available. The US company had previously sourced its oil from Norway; however, suddenly the content of Vitamin D had dropped drastically. It now needed an alternate source and placed an order for 800 tons of cod liver oil. Olafsson did not have a factory, but he had a building site and along with his wife he travelled to Norway in 1937 to select and ordermachinery. The construction of the factory was completed by the end of that year and LYSI was formally established on 10 January 1938.
