Islander Rathlin Kelp is farmed on ropes which reach down into the unusually strong currents around Rathlin Island. The strength of these tides keeps the temperature at a constant and provides the nutrients for our kelp to flourish. This, along with our bespoke cultivation methods, allows Islander Rathlin Kelp to be grown 365 days a year.
We use a 100% natural process to preserve the kelp. First we wash and blanche the kelp in freshwater. Then we chop it and deep freeze it. Thanks to this refined process which we have developed over many years, Islander Rathlin is certified organic.
