DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM

SERVICES

Sea Green’s digital ecosystem platform connects seaweed
value chain actors together through data. Offering value
add front-end services through web and mobile apps, the
platform creates collection channels for a wide range of
value chain information. This is collected and stored for
analysis and connectivity to other services, driving research,
iterative improvement and provision of new services back
into the value chain.​
