Speaker Biographies

Simon Ranger

Simon formed Seagreens in 1997, an Anglo-Scandinavian joint venture which developed award-winning production in Scotland and elsewhere in the British Isles and Nordic region. Most recently Nutritious Food Seaweed, a certification scheme introduced by the Biodynamic Association, and Simon’s brainchild, sets the standard of wild seaweed ingredients for nutrition, healthcare and the food industry. Through 'brand partnerships', Seagreens® ingredients are used by organic producers like Bart Ingredients, Clearspring, Pukka Herbs and Viridian Nutrition and are the subject of published research.

As well as these commercial activities, Simon set up Probono, an international organisation to balance business and human development in and between corporate cultures, at the London Business School in 1990. In 2010 he set up the Seaweed Health Foundation for standards, research and education on seaweed for the western diet.

Simon lives in West Sussex where he is restoring an Edwardian estate aiming to encompass biodynamic horticulture, Japanese mushroom growing, and natural bee-keeping. Simon can be contacted at
