It was 20 years ago and Seagreens founder, Simon Ranger, was a creative director in the advertising industry, developing and managing brands. One of his clients was involved with horticultural seaweed in the north of Norway, and he had access to a lot of research data. It seemed to him that this was something that could seriously help to re-establish balance in the body, in terms of nutrition and health.
The Seagreens ethos is to know everything there is to know about this extraordinarily nutritious food – hence their obsession with research. Their aim is not to produce ‘gourmet’ seaweed; Simon’s primary interest is its value to population health and how we can use it very easily on a daily basis.
This was the logic Simon applied to develop a small, remote business harvesting wild seaweed in pristine Arctic waters, a decade ago, and more recently a small manufacturing facility in the Outer Hebrides. Today, Seagreens® is a leading seaweed brand, conducting original research with partners in medical practice, the food industry, academia and government. Together with these partners, Simon wants to see health concerns including cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and others, tackled in the new product agenda of mainstream food retailers and manufacturers.
