According to a recent press release, the organic feed market is anticipated to reach $12.6 billion by 2028. More and more, consumers and farmers are conscious about the manufacturing and farming practices that produced their feed ingredients. As we know, the organic nature of raw materials depends upon the reliability and trustworthiness of the sources themselves.
Where does Acadian Kelp™ fit into the mix? We create certified organic feed ingredients you can trust. Here are the organic certification providers we are willing to stand by.
How We Ensure Organic Seaweed Products
The Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed we use for our Acadian Kelp™ products is harvested from wild-grown sources along the Atlantic coastlines of North America. By monitoring the health of the seaweed stock and only harvesting a sustainable amount of the natural resource itself, we can ensure the raw materials of our feed supplements do not include any additives or prohibited substances.
More than just starting off organic, the finished product needs to advance through the manufacturing process while remaining pure and rich in nutrients. At Acadian Kelp™, we create a traceable process that catalogs and records the origins and quality of each load of seaweed. With our organic-friendly animal feed processing methods, the end result is a supplement that boosts the health and wellbeing of the animals eating it.
