Portuguese microalgae producer, Allmicroalgae Natural Products S.A., has moved to the next stage in development of new production technologies to grow Nannochloropsis oceanica on a large scale, to provide price-competitive omega-3 oil rich in EPA.

“Currently, we’re working with strategic partners within the supplement industry to test Nannochloropsis,” said Sofia Hoffmann de Mendonça, Business Development Manager at Allmicroalgae. “It’s more sustainable and cost-effective to produce, and these customers are seeing huge business potential for using Nannochloropsis as a source of vegan/vegetarian omega-3.”

In addition to continuing production of phototrophically-grown Chlorella and the omega-3 opportunity, another focus of this expansion is to finalize the development of microalgae fermentation production. The aim of this is to serve large volumes not only to the health food market, but also to the feed industry. According to the company, fermentation increases production efficiency, and allows an even higher control over the cultures.

“We see big future potential ahead for microalgae. We’re aiming to provide a wider range of non-GMO solutions to service multiple industries. With different microalgae strains and production methods, we’ll meet customers’ varying quality and volume needs within supplements, food, feed and other industries,” said Ms. Hoffmann de Mendonça.

For the current Allma Chlorella product range, Allmicroalgae sees growing interest in chlorophyll and other phytochemicals creating further opportunities within functional drinks and powders, supplements and skin care products, with Chlorella being nature’s most densely-rich source of chlorophyll.

At Allmicroalgae’s state-of-the-art Algafarm production facility in Leiria, 100km north of Lisbon, Portugal, Chlorella vulgaris is cultivated in closed tube systems to minimize contaminants and ensure highest purity. Allmicroalgae is ISO22000 certified to ensure safety and quality of all Allma Chlorella products.

Being one of the few European producers of microalgae, and Chlorella vulgaris and Nannochloropsis sp. in particular, Allmicroalgae sells directly from Portugal to the global market.
