Better known as ‘The Seaweedman’ in the Netherlands, Toine sees it as his personal mission is to reinforce the connection between man and ocean. On one of his travels through Indonesia, he discovered that it is possible to both eat and farm seaweed. That’s when he could ‘Sea the future’.
Toine holds a BSc in biochemistry and a MSc in Nutrition. He did award-winning research on seaweed in Ireland, before returning to the Netherlands to co-found SeaGreen. You can always find him near or in the water; surfing, swimming, fishing, or diving for some fresh, wild seaweed.
