Who we are

We are committed to accelerate and strengthen the impact-driven seaweed industry. We do this because we are committed to create a strong and healthy European blue economy, that will contribute to climate change solutions for many generations to come. How? By building an inclusive member base which promotes powerful collaborations throughout the value chain of seaweed. This way we stimulate open innovation and accelerate positive developments for each and everyone involved. For a radical and powerful impact.

In other words: if the seaweed sector is successful, we’re doing our job right. 

how we are organised

We are a non-profit foundation with an ANBI status. The foundation consists of our organisational team (execution), a board (control) and ambassadors (advice). Members of the board are: Marcel Schuttelaar (Schuttelaar & Partners), Job Schipper (Hortimare) and Ton Menken (Menken van den Assem).

Our costs - for people and projects - are covered by project incomes, membership fees and donations. Our financial year reports can be found below.
