SHORE’s Seaweed Clusters are made with a source of sustainable seaweed from the remote shores around Wick, Northern Scotland, where low population density and large tidal flows provide a clean, cool, unpolluted waters for nutrient rich seaweed to flourish in.

SHORE’s dedicated harvesters hand pick the seaweed in season and in tune with the tides, selecting for the best quality and tasting plants to go into each pack of Seaweed Clusters. The team only collect a limited quota of each crop and cut every plant by hand to allow for regrowth, meaning the whole process is totally sustainable.

Once airdried, concentrating its goodness, the seaweed is mixed to create a unique seaweed blend used in SHORE’s Seaweed Clusters.

With seaweed being more nutritious than just about any land plant, SHORE Seaweed Clusters, which are made with the equivalent of 20g of fresh seaweed per pack, are rich in minerals such as iodine, low in calories as well as being a great source of soluble fibre and antioxidants.
