About Us

Our Origin Story

At Alga (Seaweed) Ltd, our story is one of innovation, sustainability, and community empowerment. Founded by Ann Ruddy, our journey began with a vision to revitalize rural coastal communities by harnessing the abundant potential of seaweed. Drawing on Ann's background in social sciences and her passion for environmental stewardship, we embarked on a mission to create opportunities for local youth and preserve our planet's health.

Driven by a commitment to inclusivity and scalability, we transformed fishers into ocean farmers, ushering in a new era of economic prosperity and ecological sustainability. Our dedication to excellence is reflected in our microprocessing units, which not only increase the value of seaweed but also foster the growth of a burgeoning seaweed economy. Through equitable and sustainable practices, we strive to meet the evolving demands of various sectors, from food and feed to pharmaceuticals and biopolymers.
