Most of our manufacturing customers use our brand name to identify the Seagreens® ingredient in their products, which also provides comprehensive information for consumers.

Setting the standard

In 1997 Seagreens® wild wrack species were the first European seaweeds to be wild harvested according to DEFRA and Soil Association Organic Standards.

These Standards remain concerned with water quality, non-use of pesticides, and environmental sustainability, but alone do not assure consumers of rigorous nutritional quality, contamination, allergens, raw ingredient quality or composition.

Large volumes of old seaweed can be cut and sold into the human food chain, which may even be storm-cast, collected on the shoreline, and rapidly dried at high temperatures.

Small scale artisan harvesting offers no guarantee of cleanliness, consistency, or nutritional composition.

A lot of seaweed is produced on an industrial scale for alginate extraction, horticulure, and more sadly, animal feed.

Seagreens moved onward and upward during the first decade of this century, developing its own methods and standards which today are unparalleled.

Seagreens ingredients have been the subject of the most comprehensive, independent scientific research and analysis anywhere in the world, including comparison with seawed from conventional production.

Seagreens developed the careful selection, monitoring, harvesting, transportation, processing, production, packaging, and international food and medical compliance to its proprietary standard.

So well regarded is this standard that it in 2014 it was chosen as the basis for the Nutritious Food Seaweed quality scheme, developed to provide an international standard of value to consumers and producers alike, in an emerging market for seaweed for human health and consumption. 

In September 2016 Seagreens was Certified under this new, non-governmental Standard developed specifically for the production of all types and species of seaweed.

Seagreens has production in Iceland, Ireland, Norway and Scotland, and is the seaweed ingredient of choice for reputable food and nutrition brands

More than half its production is exported, a promising controbution to the UK eonomy and that of these other counties.

NFS Certification means assurance on nutrition, contaminants, environment, sustainability. The world's highest standard of seaweed production.
