Imagine you could do something good for yourself and the environment by simply adding a new plant species to your diet. A Good Impact Food that doesn't need fresh water, soil, fertilizer or pesticides to grow. A food that helps our fragile ecosystem and climate get back into balance. A plant that grows naturally in our oceans, and whose cultivation offers fishing communities a sustainable and real alternative to fishing.
This is exactly the idea that drives us day by day. That's why we, the founders Deniz Ficicioglu and Jacob von Manteuffel, set out in 2019 to make seaweed a commodity in the food industry.
