Thursday 11 January 2018
Read about a new seaweed company based in the Lofoten Islands, Norway.
Based in Napp and surrounded by local, coastal fishermen, Lofoten Seaweed are taking the Lofoten food tradition one step further.
Their seaweed is wild harvested in the cold Arctic waters surrounding the Lofoten archipelago. Their vision is to bring innovative, easy-to-use seaweed products to your table - adding flavour and nutrition to your everyday meal as well as your gourmet adventure.
Founded only a short year ago, Lofoten Seaweed Company was built on the heritage of two island girls from two very different backgrounds. One grew up playing in the seaweed-covered shores of Lofoten, while the other had it served to her on porcelain plates by her Japanese mother.
When Angelita and Tamara both ended up living back in Lofoten, they took the plunge to start a company together. Although occasionally mind-numbingly cold, they now do what they love, every day.
