A Sustainable Future

A Sustainable Future

At Hortimare we believe that sustainable and circular approaches are the only possible future for our planet.

The global demand for food and industrial raw materials is growing fast and subsequently the pressure on land by extensive agriculture and exhausting raw materials rises, causing ecological disasters and political instability.

Seaweed can be a realistic alternative for land-based products in many ways if we learn to really scale up production at sea.

Seaweed is already used in various food- and feed applications and other industries.
