This is no Bull at King Island Kelp Industries

Newly acquired by International Fragrances and Flavours who process and develop King Island Kelp into products we all consume, or use pretty much daily, even our pets benefit from Kelp in their food; continue this business in operation for over 45 years on King Island, Tasmania.

Bull Kelp Forests thrive underwater around the shores on the West side of King Island  despite being stuck to a rock and constantly battling tides and swell to survive, it takes about a year to be big enough to harvest.  

King Island Kelp Industries has about 30 active, a few of which are full time and 60 registered Kelp Carters on their books, who hauled and hung the best supply of Bull Kelp in 7 years, 1550 dry tonne. 

Calculated in wet weight amounts to 6 times that amount 9300 tonne collected in lots of about 1.5 tonne per load hooked up on tee poles and left to dry by the elements of Mother Nature.

Healthy and happy my friends
