PHYTOMER'S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
From our earliest days, we have always wanted to live every moment in the marine world that is our brand's strength. Our roots in Brittany play a key role in our conceptual framework, making the environment not simply a concern, but a part of our daily lives. The fact that we are so steeped in a culture of the environment facilitates our symbiosis with nature, placing our researchers in constant contact with the marine world that is the source of our discoveries. It is logical, therefore, that we should be among those mos tinterested in protecting ouro ceans and seas.
PHYTOMER'S INVOLVEMENT IN MARINE CULTIVATION
Above all, sustainable development means being familiar with nature, its biodiversity, and its ecosystems so as to understand and protect its resources. Because it uses marine raft cultivation, Phytomer only harvests certain varieties of seaweed from natural sources and only puts into production the necessary quantities. We have set up a crop program in a 70-hectare marine grant within a protected area. Through this program, Phytomer has become a pioneer in cultivating seaweed for cosmetic purposes.
We are alsocurrentlyworking on the cultivation of threatened species that may eventually be reintroduced into the natural environment.
This method encourages the restocking of the local ecosystem, since other types of seaweed begin to grow within our crop areas and fish reproduce there naturally. Through this approach, we prioritize the principles and issues of sustainable development for the Brittany coasts.
