THE ORIGIN OF THE HAPPY OCEAN
THE FUTURE IS PLANT-BASED, BRO.
Almost all good stories start with the right people who run into each other at the right moment. For us, that moment was in 2016, in a successful e-commerce startup in the food & health sector. We quickly noticed that we think similarly: good food, a lot of exercise, a healthy lifestyle. And always with one big thought in mind - to build something that you really believe in and that has a deeper meaning.
Inspired by the impressions of our many trips, we recognized that sustainable nutrition will be one of the greatest challenges and at the same time opportunities of the future. As avid surfers and nature lovers, we have decided to create a brand for authentic alternatives to fish and seafood. Alternatives that are delicious and help protect our oceans. An innovative brand that really matters and serves a niche in a future market. And a happy brand that invites you to break new ground with us.
