The official opening of the Saint Lô facility to support the fast development of Algaia-JRS group’s R&D activities in seaweed extracts took place last Monday.

Featuring over 150 square meters of pilot production space designed around the go-forward principle and new offices, the facility is now all set to valorize seaweed.

Starting in the second semester of 2024, it will manufacture on a semi-industrial scale a broad range of seaweed-derived compounds and active ingredients for:

– new agricultural production inputs,
– extracts for human and animal health,
– active ingredients for the cosmetics industry.

The team of Algaia Services now have the ideal settings to accomplish its mission to develop new algae-based compounds, and discover new actives of natural origin for their customers around the world.

We would like to thank Saint-Lô Agglo for their continued support that allows us to keep on developing our business.
