World’s Finest Nutrients

Our Mission

Founded in 1983, we are unwavering in our mission: Deliver the world’s finest nutrients derived from seaplants for optimal health – for people, plants, and animals.

Bringing Our Mission to Life

We realize our mission by selecting the best species of sea vegetation from the cleanest and most mineral‐rich waters. Then we dry and handle fresh harvests using an exclusive technique that locks in bioavailable nutrient density. Our high quality organic kelp ingredients and branded formulas are unparalleled. They support and enhance a range of applications, for animal and pet nutrition, soil health, and human nutrition.

A Family with a Passion for Sustainability

We are proud to be a family owned and operated business, and we value having fun, building meaningful relationships, and making a difference. We are passionate about sustainability and promoting responsible environmental stewardship, which is a key component of the Thorvin Advantage.

Meet Bill Wolf, our Founder

Thorvin founder Bill Wolf

Seaweeds became a passion for me in 1971, while I was working with Bucky Fuller in the Northeast, studying the impact of human behavior on Earth’s resources. I discovered that the locals ate seaweed, fertilized their gardens, fed their livestock, and banked the foundations of their buildings with seaweed in order to insulate against the cold and winter wind. What useful plants!

Since that summer, I’ve learned a great deal more about the oceans and the plants that grow in them. To date, over 25,000 species of seaplants have been identified. They are a sustainable resource and produce the majority of our oxygen and carbon collection.

I’ve searched the world for the finest sea vegetables and the best ways to capture their value. I am pleased to offer several species through our Thorvin brand, and am especially proud of our certified organic kelps form Iceland, the finest certified organic kelps available in commercial quantities. Organic sea vegetation standards help support an economic model that assures sustainability and quality, protects our nurseries, and benefits the local and global communities.

Thorvin is useful in foods, supplements, cosmetics, fertilizers, and animal feeds. Think Thorvin for healthy people, and for healthier soils, plants, and animals.

Working together for a greener planet, we are making a difference.
