What I believe I said was that there was a strong likelihood that one producer was responsible for all products using the term "molecularly distilled", or something to that effect. Certainly, most of the fish oil products on the shelves are purchased from jobbers, rather than manufactured by dozens of individual companies.

The fish oil encapsulator that coined the term "molecularly distilled" is Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd. The page that had that key phrase is being revised, at present, but it was at:
Elsewhere on the website, you will discover that
"ONC is the only company in North America, and one of only six worldwide, able to produce commercial quantities of concentrated fish oil. "
So, it looks like your Omegabrite, and similar products, are produced here (under contract), if they are made in North America. I'm sure that information like that is proprietary and confidential. I'm making assumptions.
The link I provided used to give a variety of different selections for EPA/DHA ratios, capsule size, and so on. They'll bottle it for you, under your own label (you have to supply the label).
