Kick off stakeholder meeting in Ostend, Belgium
The ValgOrize project was launched in the presence of more than 20 Flemish stakeholders, including representatives from the Blauwe Cluster.
All participants were eager to learn about the potential of seaweed and micro-algae for food and feed, and discussed vividly about some of the facts that were presented. Did you know, for instance, that worldwide around 90% of seaweed and algae is used for food purposes, whereas in Europe that is only 9%? More interesting facts and figures can be found in the kick-off press release.
