Connemara Organic Seaweed Company is based in Galway, and harvests and dries a range of seaweed products (below). Annual production is in the region of 30 - 40 t. Connemara Organic Seaweed Company harvest and dries the seaweed, and packing is outsourced to Iasc Teo - a nearby seafood producer. The company sells both domestically and to export markets. Major export client is Sea More in Holland, they do roughly 300,000 units of dried seaweed into this customer. The company is licenced to harvest, and has no major issues with this. However as licencing procedure has yet to be finalised by the relevant department (foreshore licence from Department of Housing, Planning, Community, and Local Government - environ.ie) there is the potential for this to become a headache in the future. The company is eager to develop markets for Kombu Kelp, as there is a significant supply of raw material in their harvest area (c. 1 million t in Galway area). We are both supplying in bulk and added value products. The company has developed sales in the food ingredient channel including customers Seagreens (UK), Porto Muinos (Spain), Connemara Food Ventures. Domestic customers are SuperValu (food academy), restaurants, ingredients for further manufacturing (butter, biscuits). The company mainly exports to Spain (60%) and the UK (40%) for further manufacturing.
