OUR IMPACT

DRIVING SYSTEMIC CHANGE

Over millennia, seaweed has evolved extraordinary protective and restorative mechanisms to survive against extreme conditions – from UV rays to constant wave action to temperature fluctuations. It’s little wonder that seaweed has become the world’s wonder plant.

Sustainable seaweed farming and seaweed based products provide a systemic solution to help turn the tide on climate change, ensure food security and create ‘blue’ jobs and alternative livelihoods for fishing communities.

RESTORATIVE FOR THE PLANET

LIFE-CHANGING FOR PEOPLE

Seaweed farming

Seaweed is a nutrient-rich food source which will help ensure food security, especially given soil erosion and drought. 

Seaweed can offer remarkable health benefits:

Seaweed  bioactive extracts offer wellness benefits including gut and microbiome health, anti-inflammation and immune stimulation.

Create Jobs

 Seaweed farming and processing creates jobs along rural coastal communities and throughout the value chain.
