Responsibility_0001_Scalable.jpg
Ocean Harvest Technology has secure access to biomass from a network of harvesters across South East Asia. OHT’s proprietary seaweed blends are produced at its processing and distribution centres in Ireland and Vietnam.

OHT is also believed to be the first seaweed feed ingredient producer able to offer organic blends of these multiple species seaweed blends, sourced globally.

As part of OHT’s growing capabilities, we are able to offer our feed ingredients in a number of forms, including meals, extruded pellets, and our proprietary low-dust crumble variant.

Growing Market

Responsibility_0000_Growing Market.jpg
Widespread environmental and health concerns have spurred industry and consumer demand for natural, organic and sustainable farm products produced without the use of growth hormones, antibiotics and other synthetics. For instance, the World Health Organisation recommends that all farmers globally cease the routine usage of antibiotics in healthy animals.

Additionally, consumers are seeking natural and holistic solutions for performance and health for their pets and horses. Increasingly, the EU and the US are passing legislation to limit the use of synthetic additives and antibiotics in feed ingredients. These powerful market drivers represent an opportunity for sustainable feed ingredients such as Ocean Harvest Technology’s proprietary products.

Ocean Harvest Technology and OceanFeed Seaweed Feed Ingredients


Ocean Harvest Technology Limited is the technology and manufacturing company responsible for the OceanFeed portfolio of branded seaweed feed ingredients. These sustainably produced feed ingredients are formulated by Ocean Harvest Technology in Vietnam and Ireland and offer many benefits for production and companion animals, helping them to perform better in a natural way and dramatically reducing the need for antibiotics and other synthetic feed ingredients.

The proprietary formulae of the OceanFeed branded products combine multiple species of brown, green and red macroalgae (seaweed) specially selected for their benefits including intestinal health balance, nutrient uptake and partial replacement of other feed ingredients.

OceanFeed products have been shown to improve feed intake, increasing production, weight gain, and fertility in livestock. Specific blended seaweed products are available for cattle, pigs, poultry, horses, salmon, shrimp, and pets. OceanFeed products have been observed in client testimonials to help maintain a healthy immune system so that animals can resist infections naturally, allowing producers to treat their animals more humanely and increasing farm profits, while potentially reducing the need for some synthetic feed additives.

Sustainable Production
Responsibility_0002_Sustainably Harvested.jpg

Ocean Harvest’s products are produced in Ireland and South East Asia utilising a network of harvesters across The Philippines, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia. Ocean Harvest encourages all its harvesters / suppliers to strive towards GMP+ standards as outlined by our certifying body Control Union. These standards are in accordance with the Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 and Regulation (EC) No 889/2008 on organic production of agricultural products. 

Agreements with each harvester are outlined in our ‘Harvester Supplier Agreement’ Form, which ensures supply quality and continuous sustainable harvesting methods as outlined in our Sustainable Harvesting Plan.

Product Quality Assurance
Responsibility_0000_QualityControl.jpg

Our approach to feed safety includes the internationally recognized Hazard Analysis and adheres to the standards and requirements for feed safety assurance under the GMP+B2 scope. Ocean Harvest monitors the quality of its products using detailed work agreements and frequent site visits to each of its suppliers. 

The risks (if any) associated with each harvester are assessed and documented. This determines the frequency of site visits/monitoring required for each supplier. Each harvesting site is visited on a regular basis with records of these visits documented in our in-house checklists and harvesting site visit reports. According to our Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) there is 100% testing for key quality parameters on incoming products to ensure feed safety.
