Sea Shanti is an Australian Owned small business partnership based in beautiful Hobart, Tasmania. In 2011, Rita, Tanya and Dermot joined forces and Sea Shanti was born. Back then, we were just three good friends, who across cultures and languages, shared a certain craziness for seaweed.
Thanks to the sushi revolution, we realised that people in western countries were ready to start embracing seaweed! As people with a passion for good health and nutrition, we were captivated by seaweed and its abundant nutritional qualities. We all eat broccoli and spinach and some of us love kale (yes we do!!), but when it comes to nutrition, nothing beats seaweed!! The more we read about it, the more remarkable we found it to be. SEAWEED, A MULTIVITAMIN … MADE BY NATURE!. We wanted to play a role in encouraging people to make it part of their everyday lives!.
Our strong ethical interests directed our emerging business model – our products would need to be 100% natural, something we’d be happy to feed our own kids. We would need to donate a percentage of our profits to the conservation of marine habitats that so generously supply our beautiful sea plants. Our products would need to be made with love and care, in a place that respects and looks out for its team.
After a number of fun visits to South Korea, our business took shape. We developed our products, which are all hand made, 100% NATURAL and created with the finest quality ingredients, with no artificial chemicals or preservatives. From day 1, we have donated 5% of our profits to Sea Shepherd Australia to support their awesome work in protecting and conserving marine wildlife and habitat.
