Product overview

Toward a Sustainable Future: Redefining the Food Industry

​Today, meat production represents a significant environmental impact. ​Opting for conscious choices can help mitigate the impact, paving the way towards a healthier and more sustainable future. ​

​To address this issue, seaweed emerges as a promising solution. That's why we developed SeaMeat - a sustainable alternative contributing to a vision of more ecological and responsible nutrition.

The Product: Feature and Benefits

SeaMeat, a dried seaweed blend which can be easily integrated into existing products and processing techniques, empowers food companies, to create hybrid meat products — healthier, tastier, and more environmentally impactful.​

​When integrated at just 25% in 1kg of meat, SeaMeat® significantly reduces the environmental impact of meat products. Cultivating seaweed requires no land, fertilizers, carbon dioxide emissions, or water usage. On top of this, it contributes to ocean deacidification and the restoration of marine ecosystems.​

1) Greenhouse gas emissions related to the production of the product. 2) Freshwater use related to the production of the product. ​3) Impact of an activity on land degradation, with reference to "the natural state"​. 4) Manure and fertliizer input into water.

SeaMeat's flavor and properties make it a versatile ingredient for a variety of applications - including burgers, sausages, meatballs, soups, sauces, and ready meals - allowing for different culinary creations and product offerings. Additionally, its natural nutrient profile makes meat healthier, reducing sodium and saturated fat content while adding fiber. 

Products with SeaMeat cost the same as meat but offer better taste, Nutri-Scores, and Eco-Scores — a win-win for people, nature, and the planet!
