Simris Alg is a pioneering agribusiness growing algae in Sweden. Their mission as algae farmers is to empower healthy and planet-friendly lifestyles, by delivering superior algae-based products. Their goal is to be a landmark business for the bio-based economy.
They are based in Hammenhög, Österlen, close to the sun and sea.
People have cultivated and consumed algae since ancient times, because of their superior nutritional value. In South America, Africa and Asia, people still harvest algae from natural lakes, or grow them in simple basins where the stirring is performed manually.
Today, farmed algae are used commercially for many exclusive products such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and health supplements.
Simris Alg manufactures natural health products from farmed algae. The algae they grow at Simris are tiny microscopic marine plants, packed with healthy nutrients. These algae naturally produce vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are essential for our health and wellbeing. Some of the most important nutrients produced by algae are the marine essential fatty acids omega-3 EPA and DHA, which are also found in fatty fish. Simris Algae Omega-3 is a completely plant-based and superior alternative to fish oil.
The packaging design and graphic design is developed by Stockholm based design studio Snask.
