Scots seaweed scoops artisan award


MARA Seaweed’s wild harvested dulse flakes have won the prize for Best Artisan Product at the World Food and Beverage Innovation Awards.

The awards, which were announced on March 1st at London’s Hotelympia show, also saw the Edinburgh-based company’s shony reach the final of the Best Condiment category, and its kombu reach the Best Ingredient shortlist.

The winning dulse product is not only a rich, smoky flavour enhancer, but is also high in essential minerals, such as iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron, and low in sodium, perfect for easy everyday natural nutrition, shaken onto green veg, salads, tomatoes, red meat and salmon.
