NATURAL BINDING SOLUTIONS TO THE WORLD
Agar and Carrageenan from Indonesia. The seaweed nation.
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.
Multiple solutions to the world
