New - The Cornish Seaweed Company seaweeds
The Cornish Seaweed Company aims 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.
Most, if not all, the seaweeds currently for sale have travelled thousands of kilometres to reach your local supermarket and food shop, often all the way from China. 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 recognize it for what it is. A superfood, both environmentally and nutritionally!
