About Us

Why we built Nordic Algae

Behind Nordic Algae are a group of passionate engineers, with a shared dedication to providing the world with more sustainable resources. We found seaweed to be the most sustainable and versatile of all. But farming seaweed was still a hassle.

We decided to change this, using our collective skills and strengths to promote and expand the use of seaweed for a sustainable future. We pursue this mission by removing friction in every step from idea to production, for anyone who wants to start farming seaweed.
