Scarborough – ERDF
SeaGrown is a new business which will produce sustainable Yorkshire seaweed for a rapidly growing market. SeaGrown is located in Scarborough and intends to establish England’s first commercial seaweed hatchery, open-water cultivation site and outreach centre.
This project is for the development and improvement of a seaweed processing unit for SeaGrown on the industrial estate at Eastfield, Scarborough. This comprises a light industrial unit of 150 square metres and our intention is to develop this unit into a washing, drying and processing facility for farmed and wild-harvested seaweed, plus a packaging facility which will allow us to commence end-to-end production of our initial product range for the retail market.
