Value Proposition
ALGAR will be the first Portuguese company with controlled
culture of macro algae (Gracilaria). We pretend to use the
sub-valorised “Ria de Aveiro” natural resources.
Agar will be extracted from algae using a improved method
that will provide a high quality with a better yield and lower
costs.
In the first 5 years we intend to cover 5% of the agar
market estimated in 153 millions € and 1% of the algae
market estimated in 300 millions €, which has a predicted
increase rate of 2 % per year for both markets.
