Amy McShane writes for Ireland’s Farmers Journal that a local seaweed feed company has secured a deal with a leading manufacturer in the UK. Oceanfeed, based in Milltown, Co. Galway will be joining up with Battles UK, a British manufacturer of animal health and equestrian products.

Oceanfeed was created eleven years ago and produces seaweed based formulas based on the bioactive ingredients present in the different brown, green and red seaweeds — that replace the synthetic and other less desirable ingredients found in a variety of agricultural and aquacultural feed ingredients, such as antibiotics or synthetic colorants.

Since 2011, the company has expanded to the US and Vietnam and will now take its produce to the UK market. The company’s focus has been on how to eradicate synthetics and chemicals out of aqua and agrifeeds, and replace them with natural sustainable organic feed ingredients, like macroalgae.

Dr. Stefan Kraan who co-created the company with Patrick Martin, said the exclusive deal will provide access to an increasingly lucrative UK market.

Richard Dewey, director of Battles UK, said that Oceanfeed had “proven itself in the major studs and racing stables of Ireland and now, with approximately two thousand stores supported by Battles distribution, we will be able to provide the entire UK.”
