Certified Organic Seaweed
In 1992, Maine Coast Sea Vegetables become the first US seaweed company to receive Organic Certification. We have little control over the growing conditions of wild marine vegetables - but we do have choices about how, when, where, and how much we harvest, as well as how the seaweeds are transported, dried, stored and packaged. In addition MCSV is one of the only companies that independently chooses to do third party lab tests for possible contaminants through Katahdin Analytical, Northeast Laboratories, Brooks Applied Labs, and Eurofins. Studies are available on our website.
The NOP (National Organic Program) Standards help to ensure sustainability. These standards give clear and uniform direction to all responsible parties for harvesting and handling these precious vegetables on their way to your table.
