It’s amazing how one idea can turn into an incredible opportunity.
Dartmouth’s Mara Renewables Corporation makes nutrition enhancements from algae! Yes, algae!
Our Government provided this company with a repayable contribution through ACOA’s Atlantic Innovation Fund, and it was great to see our investment in action.
Currently they’re creating a fast-growing algae for nutrition enhancement, so they can reduce the production cost of their algal-rich oil, a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids!
Their oil is considered vegetarian, replacing fish oil.
