Yesterday we had the honour to welcome Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, to the algae farm in Hammenhög. The Crown Princess is known for her dedication to marine science, the oceans and aquatic environments, and we were happy to share our own passion for ocean health with her.

We talked about how omega-3 from algae can contribute to end overfishing, and showed how Simris promotes a circular economy by creating sustainable loops with neighbouring farms and industries.

During her visit, the Crown Princess also got a tour around our state-of-the-art labs and greenhouses where the microalgae are grown, looked at microalgae strains through the microscope, and even got to harvest and taste some freshly harvested algae herself.

The tour ended with a tasting of different algae snacks and our signature vegan chlorella ice-cream.
