Seaweed companies urged to increase production to meet growing demand
Companies involved in the farming and export of seaweed are being encouraged by local governments to increase production rates, so they can meet the growing global demand for seaweed as a healthy food option.
Business experts are predicting that the 2015 market will be dominated by health food trends, as people strive to eat more nutritious meals. Seaweed is known to have numerous health benefits, acting as natural health supplements that provide a complete balance of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and micronutrients to the body.
Although some people don't enjoy the texture of raw seaweed, there are other options. For instance, Seagreens Mineral Salt can be added to any meal for twice the flavor with half the salt, acting as a wonderful salt replacement for individuals who want to eat more healthfully and lower their sodium intake.
The global demand for seaweed is growing at such a rapid pace, in fact, that countries like New Zealand are developing training courses to help local farmers gain financial knowledge for their businesses.
"The course was interactive," New Zealand fishery expert Alex Meloti told the Solomon Star, "allowing participants to discuss their issues and concerns and included both theoretical and practical components that explained the processes required to successfully operate a small business."
Every single Seagreens product contains all the minerals, micronutrients, trace elements and vitamins that can be found in all-natural, raw, organic seaweed. Seagreens organic wild wrack seaweeds are produced to the company's award-winning proprietary standard (patents pending) among Scotland's remote Western Islands in pristine Grade A waters. All Seagreens products are organic, kosher and certified free from allergens and contaminants.
