Kōrure’s purpose is to benefit people and the planet - customers, society and the environment. We believe in the power of nature and it’s natural healing abilities.

The beginning

Kōrure’s founder, Ron has been a health food enthusiast as long as he could remember. His mother has been a big believer in “What you put in is what you get out” and encouraged him and his family to lead a healthy diet.

The day Ron learnt the fact that 90% of fish population are unsustainably fished, he began his search for alternative source for fish. Also, as a big fan of fish oil and omega-3 supplements, he sought to find an alternative source for fish oil supplements. 


This is when he discovered green lipped mussel oil. He now calls mussel oil, 'fish oil on steroids'.

"We only create the best quality products that we can proudly give to our loved ones" 

- Ron, Kōrure founder
