Hortimare is focused on getting the seaweed industry going and growing.

The mission of Hortimare is to create sustainable impact to contribute to a better world. We are convinced that we can create this impact as leading breeding company in the seaweed sector. To become a leading breeding company we need optimized farms that can deliver predictable yield.

We are currently supporting a number of farms to optimize their hatchery system and seeding technique to get to predictable and consistent yield. We operate under contract to be able to cover our costs and share all the information that is needed to make the farm successful. We experience this as a win-win for both parties. We get more and more reliable data and knowledge to be able to develop a certain standard and the farm can translate our findings to predictability of operation.

We are still in a stage of development in the seaweed sector where no company is financially sustainable yet. To get a financially healthy sector, we need to collaborate very closely and make sure that we support eachother where possible.

Please let us know how we can support you!
