Our farm

This healthy environment supports a healthy farm.

Carved out of lava fields, and fed by bright natural Hawaiian sunlight, clean crisp air, and lava-filtered Hawaiian aquifer water.

It Matters Where and How It’s Grown

Meet Dr. Gerald Cysewski, Founder & CEO

Celebrating National Earth Month. Healthy Earth, Healthy Life. Microalgae research specialist Dr. Gerald R. Cysewski came to Keahole Point on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1984 to develop the world’s first large scale system for spirulina under continuous cultivation. Dr. Cysewski located his company along the Kona Coast due to the location’s ideal conditions—abundant sunshine, fresh drinking water, trade wind breezes, and ultra-deep ocean water used to supplement the culture process. From the start, Dr. Cysewski has overseen each step of our farm and production facility, setting the standard for astaxanthin. We are proud to have pioneered this growing industry, providing the benefits of careful and scientifically cultured microalgae for healthy nutrition worldwide.
