This enables the processors of seaweed extracts to guarantee quality, traceability and supply whilst maintaining price stability. It makes Indonesia a key supplier of natural binding solutions to the food, cosmetic and personal care industry all over the world.

PROCESSING AT THE HEART OF SEAWEED PRODUCTION
Located within a 10 degree range of the equator, the world’s largest archipelago ensures sustainable year round seaweed cultivation. At the heart of the raw material, the country has made the shift from exporting seaweed as raw material to exporting extracts like Agar and Carrageenan. It makes Indonesia the one-spot location for production and processing of seaweed.
