Science, Seaweed and a vision of a better future of farming
Founded in 2005 by Dr. Stefan Kraan and Patrick Martin, Ocean Harvest Technology (OHT) has grown from a single headquarters in Galway, Ireland to having a strong presence in North America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
This global reach supports the mission of the company to develop and provide a range of natural solutions to enhance the health of the animals, environment and the customer. OHT have created a variety of patented seaweed based formulas centred on the bioactive ingredients present in different seaweeds. These ingredients allow its feeds to replace many of the synthetic components found in a diversity of agricultural and aquacultural feed ingredients.
The company mission is to improve the wellbeing and quality of the animals it feeds through 100% marine sourced, natural and sustainable feeds. We improve the health and nutrition of animals by adding our formulas to their diets which replace the synthetic ingredients that have previously been a primary component of aquaculture and animal feeds.
Our commitment to our customers and the animals they feed is measured by the achievements our employees experience in their research, development and individual recognition and by the results our customers themselves experience in their application of OceanFeed™.
Our success and quality is reflected in our research and production presence, which includes our main Research and Development Centre in Ireland, our Global Production Facility in Vietnam and our bases in Canada, Australia, The Philippines, Malaysia and China.
Ocean Harvest Technology is in its early stages as a company but already has a significant position in the global feed sectors of Salmon, Shrimp and Swine. After significant R&D, OceanFeed™ is now being commercialised in Equine, Bovine, Sheep and Pet varieties.
Founded on the principles of innovation and science, our key competitive advantages, Ocean Harvest Technology continues to place focus on the needs of the animals, our customers and our core values.
