The seaweed we use has many names, but no matter what you call it, we rely on a steady supply of this natural, renewable resource to thrive. It’s only through the long-running relationship we’ve fostered with Harvesters along the West Coast of Ireland that we have been able to create rewarding jobs and produce high-quality seaweed products sold locally and all around the world.
Seaweed harvesting has existed for centuries in Western Ireland to provide local communities and their crops with rich nutrients. When Arramara began operations in 1947, we created an opportunity to transform this traditional practice into one that brought greater economic benefits for residents of our coastal communities in the West.
Over the years, we have solidified ourselves as a reliable buyer of sustainably harvested Ascophyllum nodosum, providing Harvesters with a chance to make a living wage and support their families.
Hardworking Harvesters are critical to our operations and our communities. We are dedicated to providing them with the resources necessary to efficiently harvest local seaweed and make a comfortable living. That’s why at Arramara, we regularly pursue initiatives such as these to help our Harvesters in any way we can:
As we continue to grow Arramara, we will provide more benefits and continuously develop initiatives to help our Harvesters prosper with us and the communities of Western Ireland.
