Our growth and cultivation systems are fueled with Icelandic water, 100% geothermal power, and proprietary lighting, all of which allow us to produce sustainable, high-quality astaxanthin without interruption. Europe is the next key region for us to build on our existing distribution partnerships in North America and Asia.”
