Portugal-based Allmicroalgae has announced that it is the new supplier of Allma Chlorella – and has unveiled plans for a significant new phase of investment in its production facilities.

Allmicroalgae is now selling Chlorella ingredients under the Allma brand, with production continuing at the existing Algafarm plant in Leiria, 100km north of Lisbon. This site will be revamped – according to the company announcement – with new, state-of-the-art production technology that will boost output and increase quality levels.

As part of this investment, Allmicroalgae will widen its product range of food and beverage applications to include other forms of microalgae besides Chlorella, including Nannochloropsis. It will also upgrade the Algafarm so it can offer a greater variety of production technologies, including fermentation. These new installations will operate alongside Allmicroalgae’s existing sun-grown Chlorella facilities.

Sofia Hoffman De Mendonça, Business Development Manager at Allmicroalgae, said: “The microalgae business is young and very fast-moving. New technologies and applications are becoming available all the time, and to maintain our competitiveness it’s important that we stay on top of the latest developments.”

Allmicroalgae is 100%-owned by Secil, one of Portugal’s largest cement companies. “Microalgae remains a sector in the early stages of its development,” Ms. Hoffman De Mendonça added, “and Secil is committed to ensuring Allmicroalgae is well position to capitalize on growing demand over the next decade and beyond.”
