Silver Sponsor: Murre Technologies

Murre Technologies has been supplying the EasyFarm system with which mussel seed cultivation is possible, for almost 20 years. Seaweed cultivation and processing is their next development. Murre Technologies is building a harvester that harvests the seaweed from the cultivation nets in the sea. Sowing seaweed is also part of the EasyFarm concept, which is why they supply the complete system for harvesting and sowing the seaweed. They have also developed a seaweed bubble washer to sort the sand and undersized waste such as crustaceans from the product during the washing process. The system is equipped with separation rollers for this, the washing water is continuously filtered through a separator drum. To reduce the iodine content, they use a blanching/cooling system.

In short, they are your partner in seaweed harvesting and processing.

Seagreen Nordic

Sweden's hottest food tech company? They want to revolutionize the way we use algae in existing food products. The climate and environmental issue has become perhaps the greatest challenge of our time. Algae are incredibly protein-rich & can replace parts of this intake that otherwise come from animals & grain production. Their focus is to add algae to existing food products that are commercially viable.

Seaweed Protein bar – a better option for both you and the environment.

The bar is produced in Sweden with care for your health and your taste buds and is of course free of palm oil. The algae give you a natural supplement of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 & 6 but also plenty of protein.

Sponsor of the Speaker's Gift: 

Lofoten Seaweed

Lofoten Seaweed was formed in 2016 by Tamara & Angelita under the guiding principle of reintroducing seaweed to the modern kitchen. Seaweed is a delicious, healthy, sustainable, and scalable food product, whose properties address several problems on an individual and global scale. Rich in umami, seaweed’s flavour profile provides a taste which is often lacking in vegan and vegetarian diets. Lofoten Seaweed aims to raise the demand for seaweed to a level that only responsible, regenerative aquaculture can meet. For the moment we harvest our seaweed by hand from Nappstraumen, the fourth-strongest tidal current in the world. Our aim is to share our unique seaweed with the world, mainly in the form of seaweed spice blends and seaweed salts. Our organic-certified products are stocked in independent stores and major supermarkets across Norway, and we also have growing markets across Europe, the UK and US, Malaysia, and Japan. More and more people are beginning to understand, as we do, that the future of food lies in the ocean.
