Algae farm in Columbus, New Mexico, which will expand Qualitas Health’s total acreage to 150 acres in cultivation.

Qualitas Health, an algae-based health and nutrition company headquartered in Texas, has announced a long term, strategic partnership with commercial crop producer Green Stream Farms to triple its algae production. With this partnership, according to the Company, Qualitas achieves enough critical mass to become a sustainable omega-3 alternative, worldwide, at commercial scale.

“We are proud to produce a new category of sustainable omega-3s from algae – Almega PL® – at a scale that will give us global impact,” said Dr. Rebecca White, VP Operations at Qualitas Health. “This partnership confirms that we are poised to meet demand at a massive scale, and jumpstarts us as we prepare for exciting moves coming up later this year.”

All of Qualitas Health’s products feature 100% vegan, algae-based ingredients that are specifically designed to deliver highly bioavailable omega-3s in an easy to digest form. Their flagship ingredient Almega PL® delivers the omega-3 EPA naturally bound to polar lipids to provide superior digestibility and absorption. EPA is best known for its cardiovascular benefits, though it also has a positive impact on mood, skin and joint health.

“Omega-3 is an essential nutrient that represents an exciting market, currently dominated by fish and krill. Many people don’t realize, however, that fish and krill get their omega-3s from algae,” said Qualitas Health CEO Miguel Calatayud. “We are thrilled to be partnering with the expert farmers at Green Stream Farms to bring vegan, sustainably produced nutritional products to more people than ever before, and to become the truly green alternative in the omega-3 world.”

“We are proud to partner with Qualitas Health to produce algae on a commercial scale,” said Tom Richard, CEO of Green Stream Farms. “Our partnership will lead the industry in taking a true farming approach to algae production. We plan to continue to find innovative ways for algae to become a more sustainable product.”

Qualitas Health’s new algae farm in Columbus, New Mexico – built and operated previously by Sapphire Energy­ – will expand the company’s total footprint to 150 acres in cultivation.
