Our Company in brief
Origin by Ocean use sea and ocean grown biomass such as algae, bladder wrack and kelp, to produce natural and biologically sustainable ingredients for use in the food, beverage, cosmetics and pharma industries.
The global challenge we solve
The continuous flow of artificial Phosphorus and Nitrogen into our waters creates 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 animals and birds
-> We want to create value from an environmental problem by harvesting the blue green algae and utilising it. We want to do our part to get nature back in balance.
The value we create
To the customers, Origin by Ocean creates value by offering bio-based and non-synthetic ingredients that improve sustainability throughout the value chain up to the end user. Products of animal origin are replaced by the plant-based innovations.
To the surrounding environment and communities, Origin by Ocean creates value by cleaning the sea waters: we harvest the blue green algae and our process makes use of this harmful algae growth as a source of biological raw material. Thus we also create sustainable growth environments for natural bladder wrack and kelp. By aqua farming bladder wrack we create jobs on the coastal areas.
Our purpose and who we are
We found our common purpose from solving a global environmental issue. We are committed to build a business ecosystem, by creating value streams for society, individuals and businesses, while innovating a solution for a global challenge.

Mission & Vision
A better planet for all of us, through sustainable use of forested and harvested marine biomass from our oceans.
Cleaner water, Cleaner oceans, Cleaner life.
Our innovation is to make a good use of algae, which is everywhere!
The benefits of algae:
A raw material that grows naturally and can be farmed and harvested in natural environments
Sustainable manufacturing process with favourable environmental impact and footprint – process residuals are biodegradable and can be used in e.g. fertilizers
Biological, environmentally sustainable products for use across several industries
We create value from an environmental problem, in this first cast the eutrophication of our waters. By creating completely new value streams we are able to support sustainable economic growth at the same time that we are able to rectify the problem.
To create a global company that is taking the lead and a new approach to the environmental issues
To build a network of ecosystem partners that are jointly working to create value from our environmental issues in our oceans.
To be the key player in creating the natural balance in our oceans
