HARVESTING KELP AND SEAWEED SINCE 2007

                                                                                    

Just Seaweed is a unique business run solely by Iain Mckellar.

Iain has been harvesting and selling seaweeds since 2007 from the Isle of Bute on the west coast of Scotland.

Due to the high quality of seaweed on the isle of Bute, his seaweed has been used  by chefs in top michelin star restaurants all over the world.

The seaweed is carefully cut by hand from the rocks at low tide.

 Hand harvesting allows iain to ensure the seaweeds and kelp's are ready for harvesting, this means only the highest quality edible seaweed is picked at exactly the right time and at the right season.

all species are sustainably harvested from one location, cutting from one set shore allows him to test for heavy metals and pesticides.

 just seaweed implement a safe harvesting plan to monitor each species to prevent over harvesting.
