Our seaweed is sustainably hand harvested from the pristine waters that surround Ceantar na nOileánn, locally known as ‘The Isles’, which are situated off the south Connemara coast. In these unspoilt waters our kelp can grow unpolluted which means you don’t have to worry about the presence of any toxins in our products. All our products are processed in a way that avoids oxidation and reserves all natural nutrients.
We aim to provide you with sustainably harvested, local, edible seaweeds and introduce these as an alternative food source that is healthy, nutritional, tasty, and good for the environment. It is important to acknowledge the importance of seaweeds for marine life and we need to balance this with its use by humans. We therefore adopt an ecosystem approach, meaning that we promote conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way.
Small-scale, local produce really is key to a happier life and leads to a lower carbon footprint. By providing produce from our own waters we hope to contribute to a low-carbon economy that takes care of its environment. We really hope and believe that seaweed becomes part of everyone’s diet and that we come to recognise it for what it is. A superfood, both environmentally and nutritionally!
