Seaweed is considered the new green gold and many scientists agree that this little green plant can save our planet! What’s up with that? And where does our seaweed come from?
THOSE MAGICAL OCEAN GREENS
What comes from the sea, grows on sunlight and belongs to one of the most powerful plants on this planet? Right; seaweed! These ocean greens are an essential addition in the plant-based gastronomy, due to its high-quality proteins, omega acids and minerals. The Royal Kombu in our products is sustainably cultivated by Rebecca and Jennifer from Zeewaar.
Seaweed is considered the new green gold and many scientists agree that this little green plant can save our planet. It is a high quality source of protein, its cultivation doesn’t take up any agricultural land, and hardly uses fresh water. We believe that we have to work with the sources that are available and that the best utilisation of food is to use it directly for human consumption. EAT WEED LIVE LONG!
LOCAL AND ORGANIC SEAWEED
Our seaweed grows in National Park Oosterschelde and gets hand-picked at the sustainable seaweed farm called Zeewaar by our friends Rebecca and Jennifer. They started their first field in the summer of 2013 and at that time almost their full harvest went into our burgers!
We feel it is a privilege to work with 100% Dutch and sustainably cultivated seaweed and to be part of this milestone in the evolution of food production! Soon Zeewaar will even receive the Organic Certificate from the EU, which makes them the first organic seaweed farm in the Netherlands.
