SHORE is the trading name of New Wave Foods Ltd - a leader of the nascent Scottish seaweed industry. SHORE sustainably harvests wild seaweed from the remote and rugged coastline of northern Scotland. The SHORE team takes pride in responsible stewardship of our carefully selected harvest sites. Our trained harvesters cut our wild seaweed by hand, operating to strict harvest quotas. We are proud to have our harvesting certified as organic by the Soil Association.
SHORE recognises the opportunity to scale production through farming seaweed. We are pioneering seaweed aquaculture in Scotland, installing our first farm in Argyll in late 2018. Seaweed grows rapidly at sea, without input of fertiliser or pesticides, and acts as a natural carbon sink. SHORE will follow sustainable principles in all farming operations.
Our seaweed is the star ingredient for a range of value-add products for food retail under the SHORE brand. Our first products were the SHORE Seaweed Puffs launched in 2018. We have prioritised building stocks to supply our SHORE branded products, but now we want to push on identifying wholesale markets. The company wishes to recruit a Wholesale Manager to drive sales of our premium, sustainably sourced Scottish seaweed into new markets.
