Polaris is a Friend of the Earth. Are you?

Discover the Inca Inchi Qualitysilver oil, rich in Omega-3, -6 and -9 and Friend of the Earth certified in support of sustainable farming.


Polaris, major producer of polyunsaturated fatty acids, obtained Friend of the Earth certification for its Inca Inchi Oil at the beginning of 2015.

Inca Inchi (Plukenetia volúbilis linneo) is a plant from the Peruvian Amazon region that has been known to the native people for several thousand years. Inca Inchi seeds produce a unique and exceptional oil with a very characteristic bean pod taste.

The seeds come from a fully integrated production chain, from planting to processed oil, and are guaranteed to be chemical-free. An onsite third party audit in the Peruvian Amazon confirmed that no natural ecosystem was destroyed for the cultivation of Inca Inchi. No pesticides are used and some producers are organic certified. The organisation has defined goals, management and soil conservation strategies. No irrigation is required as plants grow exclusively on rainwater.

The organisation has defined goals, management and conservation strategies for soil. No irrigation is required as the plants grow exclusively on rainwater. The producers, as well as Polaris, are fully compliant with social accountability requirements and, in addition, the positive economic return has helped to improve the living standards of local farmers.

Social accountability and environmental conservation are core values for Polaris. In this sense we believe Friend of the Earth certification represents another important recognition for our company, following Friend of the Sea certification.

Mrs. Véronique Sancéau, Marketing manager at POLARIS.

Polaris, which also obtained Friend of the Sea certification for its marine oil range of products in 2010, is a major producer of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
