IN THE NORTH
Based out of Aalesund, Nordi is seeking to harness innovative aquaculture technology to establish a sustainable seaweed farming industry in Norway. With concessions for both offshore and onshore cultivation, we aim to take super nutritious, premium Norwegian sea greens out to a truly global market.
Seaweed is chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber - a tasty delicacy. In the Nordic countries kelp has been used as food since Viking times. Norway has Europe's largest population of seaweed or kelp, or macro-algae as it is called. Approximately 10,000 square kilometers of the Norwegian coast are overgrown with seaweed and kelp.

The way North is the way
Nordi means ‘to the North and in the North’ a simple phrase that captures the essence of our mission:
To take our thinking and expertise to the crystal clear coastal seas of northern Norway where we can cultivate and harvest fresh, nutrient-rich sea greens.
That vision of developing a customer-focused culture for a re-envisaged Norwegian seaweed aquaculture sector underpins all our efforts to bring high quality Norwegian sea greens to consumers worldwide.
A deep harvest dancing green
Nordi has a unique opportunity to revolutionise algae farming (seaweed and kelp) along the northwest coast of Norway – with over 400 acres of offshore farms already strategically located in the region. Indeed, with several seafood innovation clusters now co-located (including NCE Blue Legasea and Campus Ålesund), this region has all the strategic infrastructure and expertise needed to support the seafood cultivation, processing and export markets.
