Seaweed is an amazing fully renewable natural resource In Ireland. Since the 18th century, over 800 different species of seaweed from Irish waters have been identified. The Walton’s hand-harvest wild seaweed under a special license in areas recognised for their unprecedented natural beauty. The areas they harvest in are surrounded by special areas of conservation.
VOYA uses “sustainable” harvesting practices, which simply means only a portion of the seaweed is removed and there is no harmful impact on the environment. By removing only a portion at a time, it allows the seaweed to grow back to full size within 8 months. No machinery is used when harvesting the seaweed. The nutritional content of seaweed varies and hand selection is essential to harvesting the best seaweed. Hand-harvesting also ensures limited impact on the delicate aquatic nursery beds, that seaweed provides nearly all marine life.
