Seaweed is an important sustainable food source, that can help feed the growing world population. It doesn’t require fresh water, land, fertilizer nor pesticides. Only sunshine. It is considered the most sustainable food on the planet. The next step so to get it on people’s plates: let’s turn seaweed into everyday food!
In November 2013 Seamore’s founder had a family holiday in Ibiza. Let’s take you back to that very moment. They were having dinner in restaurant Bambuddha and he order the ‘seaweed salad’. No seaweed in sight, so he wanted to complain to the chef. His wife points at the tagliatelle on his plate: could that be it? He warily looks at her: can she no longer distinguish pasta from seaweed? But she turns out to be right.
He was eating ‘Himanthalia’, a culinary seaweed that is picked straight from the rocks and is nicknamed ‘sea spaghetti’. Lovely stuff! But it’s not the great taste that keeps him awake that night. What if we could replace half the pasta in the world with seaweed? An insane idea: new culinary possibilities and a healthier future. Later, he understood that experts see seaweed as a key sustainable food source that can help feed a world population growing to 9 billion people.
He found the ultimate food for the future. The next step was to get it on people’s plates. That’s how Seamore was born, with the mission to turn seaweed into everyday food! With several beautiful food products based on seaweed, from pasta till chips, the sustainable brand Seamore is a perfect fit with de Smaakspecialist. That’s why Seamore was added to our brandportfolio in June 2022.
