What we do

Quite simple, we sell seaweed from the seashore

In actual fact, it is a bit more complex than that, as whilst all seaweed is essentially good, some is better, and our seaweed is superb!  This is due to our impeccable Patent Pending seaweed supply chain, techniques and technologies, and expert platform that ensure the quality, safety, traceability, consistency and sustainability of our raw materials.
The high quality and uniqueness of our seaweed ingredients relies on our locations, technologies and techniques of getting seaweed from the sea to the finished product, with the appropriate testing, analysis and research.
Our seaweed supply and the applications of our products are all backed up with experience, expertise and meticulous research.
We appreciate that seaweeds and their many uses are new to lots of people, and so we work with you all the way from Sea to Store… on supply, product development, marketing and regulatory approval where required.

Our seaweed addresses market demands, and opportunities including:

  • Salt replacement
  • Enhancing nutritional profiles
  • Enabling EU Approved Health Claims
  • Weight and blood sugar management
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability

Our Products

Our “Seaweed&” product range offers a selection of superb quality seaweed ingredients, with multiple benefits for the food, health and nutrition markets.
Our primary focus is on seaweeds sourced and processed using our Patent Pending (GB1702881.2) techniques and technologies based in the Scottish Outer Hebrides. The pristine waters, world-class expertise, and unique technologies ensure you get outstanding quality, which is unacheivable by any other seaweed supplier.
Our core range, and related products, are the only global source of DNA Authenticated Seaweed TM, analysed by independent UKAS accredited laboratories, and with full and transparent traceability.

Our Hebridean Ascophyllum Seaweed is our most popular.  This highly scalable and sustainable seaweed offers numerous benefits including salt replacement, nutritional enhancement (containing all the minerals and trace elements) and as a good source of natural iodine.  Furthermore, it has been widely researched with benefits for weight and blood sugar management.
Our fully traceable accreditation system, and Patent Pending and gentle processing ensures high quality, scalable and consistent production for this natural wholefood ingredient.
It is found at the lower range of the intertidal zone, and is abundant around sheltered shores. Commonly referred to as Egg Wrack or Knotted Wrack in Europe, in North America it is often referred to as ‘kelp’, even though not one of the Kelp species.
Available in fine and medium sized granules.
