Please introduce yourselves: What does your startup do?
On a global scale, we urgently need new sources of healthy, tasty and sustainable food to feed the planet. Seaweed is considered the healthiest and most sustainable food that exists but is hardly being used.
Consumers are looking for food that is good for them and the planet without sacrificing taste or convenience. We design products that bring the taste, health and sustainability benefits of seaweed to our plates in an attractive and accessible way.
On a more detailed level, seaweed is a superfood and offers a great way to shift to plant-based protein, consume fewer calories and increase your intake of vitamins, minerals and fibers.
How did you come up with an idea and concept? What inspired and motivated you to create this product?
Willem Sodderland, the founder of Seamore, ordered a seaweed salad in a restaurant but received a plate with green tagliatelle and no seaweed. He found out that that pasta was actually seaweed. A fantastic way to eat less carbs and more veggies!
He realized that seaweed can replace or enhance our favorite foods while making them healthier and more sustainable. That how our company’s mission to turn seaweed into an everyday food was born: Some seaweed, we seamore.
