Accelerating the shift to sustainability by harnessing the power of kelp.
Kelp has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years to feed crops, animals, and humans. These simple uses have withstood the test of time, but with today’s knowledge and technology, even more uses for kelp are being uncovered.
We isolate the valuable compounds and transform them into products beneficial to the environment and climate.
Our products contribute significantly to:
Crop & plant health
Liquid extracts or “biotimulants” increase crop resilience allowing farmers to drastically reduce the use of synthetic fertilizers.
Fucoidans and fucoxanthins, with their anti-oxidant and anti-cancerous properties, are an effective ingredient for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industry.
Alginates, which are only found in brown seaweed, are the cornerstone input for biodegradable films and packaging, allowing for less reliance on plastic. They are also input materials for seaweed based textiles.
Lipids, proteins, sugars and the overall effect of the seaweed on animal gut health make it a perfect animal feed supplement—allowing farmers to use fewer antibiotics.
What makes us different?
We use only cultivated kelp, leaving the wild kelp beds to flourish.
We use Macrocystis Pyrifera (giant kelp) sourced from our sister company Kelp Blue.
We deliver at scale and can guarantee a sustainable and steady supply of products.
We employ a biorefinery, or zero waste approach, where we apply processing methods that use every component of the harvested material.
We invest in developing patented, clean, green seaweed processing technology and are continuously deepening our knowledge through research and partnerships.
At full capacity, we expect to harvest 120 tonnes of giant kelp per hectare, per year.
