Seaweed, the organic food superstar
Seaweed is continuing to feature in prime place in food products in all categories. With its multiple properties and high in protein, antioxidants and minerals, seaweed is one of the essential ingredients of organic recipes. Algue Service has recently added to its traditional range of seaweed tartares with Mayonnalg, an all-plant based mayonnaise-type sauce to be found in the chilled food section, made with 15% fresh seaweed, bringing a taste of iodine to everyday cooking. Meanwhile, Notre Terre has turned mustard into a béarnaise sauce with the addition of seaweed.
Zero waste and 100% convenience
When producers team up to make good use of their unsold (unappealing or off-size) production, what you get is LABEL D’OC, a cottage cannery business, and its range 7/e, jars of conserves made from seasonal local products and free of preservatives and colourings.
Just as handy as disposable pouches of puree but much more economical, fun and ecological, the reusable Squiz offer families an opportunity to enjoy their snack on-the-go while consuming responsibly. Fill them with home-made or bulk-bought purees, and take them wherever you go. Reusable an average of 50 times, they bring variety to the snack pouch whilst substantially reducing waste.
