With a desire to create sustainable products that assist in human health - Mermaid Fare was created in 2013. Since then we have discovered apart from human health, sea vegetables can reach many industries and offer natural solutions.
Originating always and only from regulated wild species and approved, licensed aquaculture leaseholds throughout the North East Atlantic region, Mermaid Fare Inc. provides sustainably managed high value sea vegetables and seaweed based products.
Our outlook is eco-friendly with cultivation and regulation being an important factor in Mermaid Fare's ethics to provide quality products.
Our company mission is creating innovative seaweed products that assist in the health of humans and ultimately our planet through sustainable and environmentally friendly processing methods – offering manufacturers and consumers alternatives to food and ingredient choices.
Edible sea vegetable's are a secure, plant based food source for our planet's growing population and do not require feed or fertilizer to grow. In addition to the nutritional benefits of eating sea vegetables, research shows certain species positive effects in reducing ocean acidification - making sea vegetables both a suitable food source and commercial ingredient for the future.
Our plan for the future is to continue to develop innovative seaweed based food and cosmetic ingredients. Mermaid Fare's research and development initiatives include:
• Process and Product Development
• Novel Extraction Methods
• Applied Nutrition
• Cosmetic Formulation

Greetings from the sea,
This is Taylor Widrig – Founder and President of Mermaid Fare, Inc.
Our brand aims to bring seaweed into the North American household, and to make the many benefits of sea vegetables easily available to the consumer from a source they can trust.
Sea vegetables are a rich source of many nutrients including trace minerals, vitamin C, omegas, plant based protein, calcium, a range of B vitamins – and so much more. Not only are sea vegetables a highly nutritious food, they offer many topical benefits to the skin thanks to their natural bio-active compounds.
Mermaid Fare cares about sustainability and advocates for the ecological governance of our oceans. We are open to research partnerships and stimulating innovation in Atlantic Canada with a natural resource.
Thank you for visiting the Mermaid Fare website – we get excited about seaweed, and think you will too.
