About the Organization:

Symbrosia developed SeaGraze, a natural seaweed feed additive that reduces enteric methane emissions in livestock by 80%+. Called “the seaweed that could save the planet” by The Verge, Forbes, and The Washington Post, Symbrosia’s product is unmatched in value and is being used by Neutral and Organic Valley in early demonstrations. Symbrosia breeds and cultivates fast-growing seaweed strains in Kona, Hawai'i and mixes the dried seaweed into ration or blended with mineral on pasture for verified reduction. By working with contract manufacturers, carbon certifiers, and trendy brands we're creating scaled, audited, and culturally significant climate-friendly beef and dairy products ahead of cell-cultured alternatives.
