Our quality process

1

Harvest

Sealac harvests Ascophyllum nodosum in a sustainable way in the clean sea waters along the West coast of Ireland.

This species is traditionally hand-harvested by local cutters at low tide. Harvesters are using careful rotation and selection of the cutting areas to allow sustainable management of the seaweed stocks and a regeneration of the resource.

As regards foreshore sustainability, Sealac has developed an exclusive application to map and manage the harvest areas.

Process

After fresh raw material has been received and inspected, it is washed to remove any sand and impurities. Cleaned seaweed is then conveyed into the factory to be dried and milled. Drying at a low temperature retains all the nutrients and vitamins, which results in lower feeding rates.  

Sealac has developed a unique process, drying seaweed at low temperature using air, saving all the nutritional values, green coloration and typical seaweed odour. After water evaporation, we obtain a moisture content of 10-12%.
