Discover the remarkable journey of Zeewaar, the trailblazing seaweed farm that established the first sustainable commercial seaweed farm in Kamperland, Zeeland in 2013. As pioneers in this innovative field, Zeewaar has been at the forefront of developing the seaweed industry. With the assistance of Impuls Zeeland, they received invaluable support in starting up, including network contacts and funding.
Rebecca Wiering, co-owner: ''In January 2012, we had our first meeting with Impuls Zeeland about our plans to establish the first sustainable commercial seaweed farm in the Oosterschelde for the cultivation of edible seaweed. From that first meeting onwards, Impuls Zeeland has supported us in word and deed."
"Impuls Zeeland put us in touch with InnoGo!, with a committee of wise business people from the region, who looked at our plans."
Embrace the Growth of a New Industry: Seaweed Farming in the Netherlands
"Every time Zeewaar was looking for companies in Zeeland to do business with, Impuls Zeeland was there to advise us. In short, Impuls Zeeland has really helped us on our way to bring a new qualitative local product on the Dutch market and with that, a new branch of industry in our country. A branch that is interesting for businesses, educational institutions, knowledge institutions and public authorities.''
