About Us

Our Story

We’re seaweed people, first and foremost. We are an ongoing collaboration of ocean-loving visionaries, foodies, seaweed geeks, moms, dads, salty dogs, artists, alchemists, surfers and explorers all dedicated to changing the world with seaweed. 

Our bold mission is to sustainably source the ocean, reduce our dependence on freshwater for food production, and tackle ocean acidification. 

Join us as we nourish both people and planet.

We Grow Our Own

Roughly 98% of seaweed we consume in the U.S. is imported. We brought harvesting seaweed closer to home – cultivating our own seaweed in farms along the Pacific Coast. All of our seasonings and pastas are infused with the highest quality seaweed you can find, naturally grown in the pristine waters of the Pacific Ocean.

We use our magical seaweed farming powers for good, to reduce the world’s dependence on freshwater food production, shift our food system towards renewables and de-acidify the ocean. When seaweed is responsibly harvested, it’s not only delicious and incredibly nutritious, but it also has the power to literally change our climate equation.

We are delighted to bring you these amazing seaweeds, connect you to the places they come from, and the people who harvest them.
