Seaweed farms require no fresh water, no deforestation, and no fertilizer.
A seaweed farm roughly the size of Washington state could provide enough protein for everybody in the world.
Today, oceans account for over 70% of the earth’s surface, but only contribute 2% of our food. We’re ready to change that!
Our story starts with two dads who grew up on potato chips and two dads who grew up on seaweed. In 2011, the four of us thought: what if we could make a snack that’s tasty and good for you at the same time?
So, we experimented in our own kitchens, and did lots of taste testing with our families. Dozens of versions later, we knew we had cracked the code with umami-rich, seaweed-based snacks that were delicious and healthy.
In the years since, we’ve created a whole ocean of new foods (and drinks!) that are authentically delicious, packed with vitamins and minerals, and have none of the bad stuff like GMOs, trans fats or artificial anything.
And you know what’s even better? Because seaweed is the most sustainable crop on the planet, our products are a whole lot better for the environment than other stuff you’ll see on the shelves.
We're really proud of what we’re creating here Ocean's Halo, and we’re thrilled we get to bring our authentic Asian-inspired foods to your neighborhood market.
“Seaweed is a truly miracle superfood. It requires no fertilizer, no soil, no pesticides, no weeding and no watering. And because it grows remarkably quickly – up to 6 inches a day – it’s a great source of long-term, sustainable food supply.”
– Mike Shim
“We are absolutely committed to creating new, delicious and innovative products with seaweed, one of the planet’s most sustainable food sources. We’re also committed to giving back to improve the awareness about risks to our oceans.”

“When I was growing up, seaweed was on the dinner table every night. It’s great to be creating the same healthy goodness for my own kids in snacks and other foods they love.”
– Shin Rhee
“We’re proud that seaweed is a source of many important nutrients for people, and that it’s also healthy for the planet. From reducing ocean acidity to literally removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, seaweed’s benefits are only beginning to be fully understood.”
