Our Philosophy

Simris Alg is a pioneering agribusiness growing algae in Sweden. Our mission as algae farmers is to empower healthy and planet friendly lifestyles, by delivering superior products from algae. Our goal is to be a landmark business for the bio-based economy. We are based in Hammenhög, Österlen, close to the sun and the sea.

WE ARE ALGAE FARMERS

A bicycle ride through the ripening grain fields in Österlen actually says it all. Plants are the basis of the food we eat, the materials we use, and the energy that fuels us. Farming and agriculture are key industries to sustain our lives here on the planet.

Growing algae is a pioneering branch of modern agriculture. As algae farmers, we grow and harvest one of the earth’s most primordial crops: sea-borne plants that invented photosynthesis – the power to harness sunlight, essential to all life on earth.

Algae naturally produce many unique substances, which are essential to human and animal health. Our business is to harness these substances, and deliver highest quality, exclusive products that give our customers access to these sun-packed gifts of the sea.

TO DO GOOD

As a company, we are an integral part of society. Profit is at the heart of what we do, as is doing good. We create jobs, generate new knowledge, reduce harmful impact on natural resources, and make a difference in people’s lives with our products. We replace unsustainable production methods with truly green and bio-based technologies. For us, this ensures long-term growth and profitability. Through collaborations, we share our know-how with industries and organizations who are serious about making a difference and improving their impact on our planet and our lives.

HEALTH IS FREEDOM

A fit and healthy body is a body free from restrictions – strong enough to head out for a run, to play with the children, and to withstand stress and disease. For us, health is about enjoying life. To have fun, to feel strong, and to be truly alive.

Health and the planet are interrelated. The food and health products we eat to keep us healthy and strong, should not cause depletion of natural resources, and should of course be free from environmental toxins and pollutants. We want to be able to breathe fresh and clean air, drink pure water, and enjoy nature with its stunning scenery and amazing variety of all things living.
