Redrose Developments supports the sustainable development of Irish seaweed to preserve culture, language and the natural environment. Irish Seaweed is globally renowned for it's purity and high levels of nutrients. It also has an abundance of different species which are indigenous to the Irish coast.

We adopt a helicopter view of the management of our global resources, in particular marine resources, and specifically Irish seaweed. We contextualise these resources as ecosystems which support a number of life forms on which we all depend.

We are driving the debate on the sustainable development of Irish seaweed resources through education, innovation, product development, job creation, social media, marketing and increasing sales and use of Irish seaweed based products.

We are currently looking for investment in the development of this natural resource to realise its full potential and profitability at a local and global level.
