Production and export of wild SeaWeed

.

Who are we?

We are wholesalers and distributors worldwide of dehydrated, salted, frozen and fresh wild edible seaweed from the lower estuary area.

High-quality products from the Galician coast due to their importance in the daily diet, which provides many minerals, vitamins and other substances.

We are in one of the geographical areas with the most sea produce – a unique sea harvest -, as the temperature during the harvesting season is the best in the entire North Atlantic area.

People who harvest the edible seaweed have a lot of experience and knowledge of the produce. The authorities are focused on its exploitation as a marine resource of economic interest. Our action focuses above all on the great Atlantic estuaries of southern Galicia.
