SEA: THE POSSIBILITIES
We are seaweed evangelists – on a mission to harness the revolutionary benefits of seaweed to Kelp the World®.
Our impact mission is to enable the emerging seaweed industry by creating demand for sustainably-farmed seaweed. We do this by developing and creating products including all-natural nutraceuticals, food ingredients and bio-packaging materials for the super high-growth markets of plant-based foods and circular life cycle packaging.
PLANTING THE IDEA
It all started in the summer of 2018 when our Co-founders Karen and Charlie were introduced as a result of their shared passion for seaweed and its ability to contribute to People Health and Planet Health. Karen wanted to make packaging from seaweed. Charlie knew they could do that but to generate maximum environmental, economic and societal benefits, they should also extract the nutritional value and utilise the whole plant. And that is how Oceanium and Oceanium’s biorefinery business model was born.
Like seaweed, the business is growing fast. We are leaders in highly technical, macro-cascade seaweed biorefinery technology. Importantly, we are focusing on processing sustainably-farmed seaweed and are building relationships with farmers across the western hemisphere. We continue to progress R&D, register Intellectual Property and scale up our processing technology.
As the team expands to match our ambition, everyone’s unique skill sets, knowledge, and relationships will enable us to deliver our vision of becoming the world’s leading processor of sustainably-farmed seaweed and continue to create novel and innovative seaweed-based products for People Health and Planet Health.
We are an impact business. Our goal is to enable the sustainable seaweed farming industry to help mitigate climate change, ensure responsible coastal management and create ‘blue’ jobs.
Integrate seaweed into our everyday lives for People Health and Planet Health.
We love our planet and are in business to help protect it. Which is why we follow the GIIN Theory of Change to measure and report our targeted impacts against the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We will always look to set the gold standard and lead by example in this emerging seaweed industry. We want to keep exceeding expectations every day.
It’s in our DNA to push boundaries. We will always seek new ways to improve on process and products and unlock potential in our people.
Honesty is at the heart of our company. We are transparent about what we do and why, taking our responsibility to each other and the planet seriously.
We treat everyone with fairness and respect – from our people, farmers and suppliers to the customers and communities in which we operate.
