Let the new green thrive in the blue – the future of seaweed farming is right around the corner!

Cajsa Torell is CEO of Kobb AB and has previous experience from the seafood industry and work within the environmental field. Kobb is an innovative seaweed company based on the West coast of Sweden. The company farms, refines and develops unique value-added products from seaweed for customers in the food industry, as well as in skin and health care, for increased use of environmentally positive Swedish marine raw materials. The Swedish seaweed industry is contributing to the transformation to a sustainable world in several ways, and the next step is to farm larger volumes of seaweed – the new superfood. This is made possible through the collaboration with OX2 where environmental value is added to the planned wind farm Galene outside of the coast of Varberg.
