LeanLife Health Inc (CVE:LLP) said the processing and manufacturing equipment to make its omega-3 products has been delivered to its production facility in Vancouver, B.C.
In a statement, the company said the equipment delivered will be used to convert raw flaxseed oil into oils with qualities unavailable from standard flaxseed ingredients.
Further processing by LeanLife will convert some of the oils into emulsions and powders.
All the products are designed for use in making and/or fortifying a wide variety of commercial foods, including bread, noodles, yogurt and cheese.
The company leased a 4,000 sq. ft. facility in Vancouver earlier this year.
It plans to continue to add services and leasehold improvements to enable the commissioning and start-up of the equipment.
It has also set up a temporary laboratory in the Vancouver area where testing is ongoing prior to initialising production.
"We are very pleased to have a full suite of equipment on-site and look forward to initial Omega 3 oil test production in the near future," said Stan Lis, its chief executive officer.
"Preparation for operating the production facility is progressing smoothly and we are excited about our next steps, which include commercial permitting and obtaining food industry certifications for our product line."
