AstaReal AB is part of the AstaReal Group which is fully owned by the Japanese pharmaceutical company Fuji Chemical Industries Co.Ltd.

In the early 1990s, we established our first production facility in Gustavsberg, Sweden, where we became the first company in the world to commercially produce natural astaxanthin. In 1995, we launched Astaxin – the first human nutritional supplement containing a natural source of astaxanthin.
Consumers and researchers alike have recognized the superior health benefits of natural astaxanthin, including the Swedish Cross Country Ski Team, who has used Astaxin since 1995. Today, AstaReal AB together with their parent company, continue to lead the natural astaxanthin market with superior technology and product innovation.
