Our customers expect the highest food quality and consistency from their food products, and we have dedicated ourselves to live up to discerning global markets. Our Acadian Seaplants team has developed state-of-the-art cultivation and production processes that are unrelenting in their commitment to quality.
Our exceptional stock of Chondrus crispus seaweed begins to grow under controlled conditions. We cultivate juvenile seaplants in indoor tanks, moving them to covered greenhouses and outdoor tanks as they flourish. We harvest the crops at their peak size and desired characteristics, harvesting only the purest, most colorful and highest quality crops for our food products.
Once harvested, we gently wash the Pink (Aka), Green (Midori) and Yellow (Kiku) Hana Tsunomata® sea vegetables. No colors or dyes are added to the product – only our pigment extraction process brings out the rich colors you see on your plate.
To enable long shelf-lives for our products, we use a custom-designed, low-temperature dehydration process. This gentle drying method reduces the moisture content while preserving the shape, color, texture and nutritional value of each plant. Hana Tsunomata® is then separated, sorted and packaged using sophisticated systems that maintain cleanliness and ensure only the best of the best is delivered to our customers.
