GOED is a 501(c)6 not-for profit trade association. Its goals are to increase consumption of omega-3s to adequate levels around the world and to ensure that the industry is producing quality omega-3 products that consumers can trust.

GOED was founded in 2006 as GO3ETA, Inc., but do business as the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED). The roots of GOED go back to 2000 when the industry collaborated to petition the US Food and Drug Administration to establish a heart disease risk reduction claim for omega-3s.
