How are we different?

We source our small batch organic sweet kombu seaweed from a family farm in the vast Donegal Bay on Ireland's rugged north west coast. Here, harvesting seaweed has been a tradition for generations. We source our dulse from a family business that has been specialising in producing gourmet dried seaweed for 20 years. The seaweed is harvested and sorted exclusively by hand. This ensures a high quality selection and a sustainable, environmentally friendly harvest. They are dried gently at very low temperatures to preserve the quality of the wild seaweed, which is naturally rich in iodine. Past harvests indicate that iodine content are subject to strong fluctuations.

Sweet kombu

Sweet kombu (Laminaria saccharina), also called sweet kelp or sugar kelp, is found on rocky coastlines of cool, temperate zones. It can be found across Europe from the North Atlantic coast to the Baltic Sea and the western Mediterranean as well as in Asia and America. The green-brown seaweed reaches up to 3 metres in length and thrives on the shoreline and in shallow waters at depths of up to 20 metres. It is predominantly found growing on rocks and mussel shells.

The algae's name hints at its slightly sweet flavour. Used for seasoning, but also as a garnish, sweet kombu is highly valued for its unique taste and nutritional properties and is used in many different ways in kitchens all over the world.

Cultivation & Processing

Our premium sweet kombu seaweed is sourced from a small, family-run, certified organic, natural seawater culture in a remote area of Donegal Bay in the north-west of Ireland. For generations, seaweed harvesting has been a tradition here; this particular family business specialises in producing dried gourmet seaweed in raw food quality. Part of the cultivation area lies in a special conservation area, the Special Area of Conversation (SAC). Here, the seaweed is harvested by hand under the most rigorous conditions, whilst respecting nature and the environment. The water quality of Donegal Bay is also regularly inspected by the council. Several beaches along the expansive bay have been awarded a blue flag, indicating the best water quality. Due to the strong tides and rough seas, the harvesting season is limited, and only healthy and strong plants can survive here. Harvesting takes place at low tide only for a few weeks a year. Sweet kombu grows in the deeper parts of the shore. They are carefully harvested and sorted by hand, and then gently dried with a dehumidifier in drying rooms at temperatures below 40°C. The meticulous harvesting and drying preserves the unique flavour and premium raw food quality.
