Oregon Seaweed aligns with the Core Values of Local Catch Network by working with our local coastal communities and environment. We hire members of the community who are closely tied with our fisheries. We pay a living wage and offer our product at a cost that works for the consumer. We collaborate with researchers and businesses beyond food to determine the best direction for our product and practices. We believe that by growing a healthy fresh sea vegetable, we can help build a healthier more resilient community and environment.
About Oregon Seaweed
Oregon Seaweed is working with our environment to provide our communities with a fresh, healthy & sustainable food. We believe that healthy, fresh ingredients do not have to come at a cost to the environment; in fact, alternative sources of protein like seaweed can help our world heal. Together we can change the way people think about the food they consume.
