Currently we have a minimum of 70% organic certified ingredients (started at 50%) in our products and we will continue this work towards the goal of 100%.

Marina Miracle will switch off lighting in premises at the end of each day. On weekends, Marina Miracle saves electricity by leaving the lights off and turning off all equipment that is not in use. Our production is using raw ingredients and the manufacturing is using low heat (not above 40 degrees Celsius) that requires less energy than traditional manufacturing.
If possible, Marina Miracle will always select shipping by sea when importing goods. The goods are manufactured in Norway. When exporting to other countries we strive to send out products to local distribution centers by bulk to avoid unnecessary transportation of goods.
