    With the ever changing world, it is imperative for businesses to incorporate sustainability in their operations. In the case of aquaculture, farming in the sea should be sustainable for both the natural resources and the people harvesting them.

    In line with this, we continuously provide farmers the required technical and financial assistance in terms of seaweed farming. Proper farming practices and additional knowledge on seaweed are imparted to the farmers through training sessions and general guidelines on improved farming techniques based on industry practices.  With the use of these practices, farmers can harvest more consistent number of seaweed over a specific period of time, which essentially leads to increase in production and income for the farmers while following sustainable farming methods and producing quality raw materials. This is a vital part of a dynamic partnership to promote life and growth of the farmers.

Whatever Happened to Sound Food Science?

 

If you want to see what the convergence of social media, government, questionable studies and a polarized society can do to torpedo food science and relevant research, you need look no further than the organic food movement. In the 1980s, it looked like the word ‘organic’ as a food descriptor would go the way of the word ‘natural,’ that is, ubiquitous, confusing and more a marketing term than a definition. A few months back, a New York Times article said that the food industry never let science get in the way of a good marketing gimmick.

 

A U.S. ‘solution’ came with the 1990 passage of the Organic Food Production Act (OFPA). Under OFPA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) would appoint a 15-member National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) to serve as an advisory group to USDA. The first all-volunteer members of the NOSB were appointed in 1992, and the defining goal of the NOSB was to promote agriculture that “enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity.”[1] With that goal in mind, the NOSB and USDA established a labeling program, as well as a list of processes, ingredients and applications that would be suitable for organic foods.
