Cornish Seaweed Co.

Cornwall-based Caroline - who worked in renewable energy - and Tim - a former energy conservation expert - always loved being outdoors near the sea. So when they realised that there wasn't much of a seaweed industry in the UK, it seemed natural for them to start a business sustainably harvesting seaweed. They moved to Ireland to learn the trade from seasoned pros, and then returned to Cornwall to build up their business from scratch. Now, they are leaders of the pack when it comes to the seaweed industry, helping pave the way by creating the code of conduct for sustainable sourcing and setting harvesting standards for the whole country.
