Sustainably Harvested

Thorvin is deeply committed to being environmentally, economically, and socially responsible – to our communities, our customers, our team members, and the planet. For nearly three decades, we have been documenting sustainability of harvesting practices and protecting aquatic biodiversity. Fresh kelps are cut every three to seven years from managed and mapped beds, and only a small percentage of the annual new growth is harvested.

Our dryer is powered by geothermal hot water, an indigenous and renewable resource. We ship product by freighter and rail where possible, and continually look for efficiencies to minimize carbon footprint.

Our harvest supports local residents and farmers, and together all stakeholders protect organic harvesting practices and sustain economic benefits to the local community.
