About us

Origin by Ocean processes sea and ocean grown biomass such as blue green algae, bladder wrack and kelp. From this biomass we produce natural and biologically sustainable ingredients for use in the food, beverage, cosmetics and pharma industries.

Our vision


A better planet for all of us, thru sustainable use of forested and harvested marine biomass from our oceans.


We start by creating a Baltic Sea an algae-based business ecosystem in Finland. By doing this we create a new economic model that fights the eutrophication of the Baltic Sea in a commercially viable manner. Finland's first neo-ecology biorefinery algae processing plant is planned to be operational with full production capacity in 2026.

Our mission

Cleaner water, cleaner oceans, cleaner life



We encourage each other to grow in knowledge, skill, teamwork, scope of responsibility and range of activities. We believe that Associates will exceed expectations when given the freedom to do so.


Everyone at Origin by Ocean sincerely tries to be fair with each other, our family members, our suppliers, our customers and anyone else with whom we do business.


All decisions we make are measured against the sustainability checkpoint: That we create value by improving our habitat thru innovation and sustainable use of our planets biomass and other resources. 


We are not assigned tasks; rather, we each make our own commitments and keep them.

The Global Challenge we solve

Continuous flow of artificial phosphorous and nitrogen
into our waters
Extensive blue-green algae blooms and concentrations

Contaminated drinking water

Loss of fish population and native seaweed

Health threats such as skin rash and allergies

Poisoning of birds and animals

Key business drivers 


As much as 40 percent of the ocean is heavily affected by pollution, depleted fisheries, loss of coastal habitats and other human activities.

The rise of the vegan


The ocean absorbs about 30 percent of carbon dioxide produced by humans, buffering the impacts of global warming.

US$3 trillion

Globally, the market value of marine and coastal resources and industries is estimated at US$3 trillion per year, about 5 percent of global GDP.
