Seagreens® is a broad initiative, with our harvesting and production operations in the British Isles and Nordic region, the Seaweed Health Foundation for research, standards and public information in Edinburgh and London, Retail and Distribution Partners in several countries, and our head office in West Sussex. This year we have organised or participated in a number of events and continued our scientific research with more than half a dozen projects at a similar number of British and Scandinavian universities.
With other producers and partners we continue to pioneer a sustainable, world class seaweed industry in north west Europe which can be of great economic and nutritional value to our own and world populations in years to come.
SEPTEMBER, 2016 - Edinburgh, Scotland: Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11. 12noon - 4pm daily
Seaweed for Health
Seagreens exhibited and gave talks along with many others at the Seaweed Health Foundation's 4th annual event held at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. Through these public events we can discuss nutrition, foraging and food, the event highlighting how British seaweed used as ingredients in nutrition and food products is becoming a valuable export. More than 1000 visitors were able to touch and taste the different species and find out why and how they can add health and flavour to the daily diet. You might like to read Dietary Seaweed in Preventive Health by the Foundation's founder Simon Ranger, recently published in Positive Health online.
Edinburgh is also the venue for the Seaweed Health Foundation's 2016 annual gathering for Friends of the Foundation to meet and discuss their shared interests on the Sunday morning fromm 10am - 12.
