Meet Our Team

Christer Heimtoft

Flow Manager & Founder

The northern most region of Norway was my birth place. In this arctic region people have a close and historic connection to the nature.

My passion for health and food has been shaped in my early years with my mother allways preparing food from ground up by using whole and healthy raw materials, most of the time with fantastic quality seafood, but also traditional clean Norwegian foods from crop and land. The pure sea waters and the clean soils of Norway has given us the best quality of seafood and root vegetables, both essential foods in the norwegian cuisine.

The passion for healthy food and overall health has lead me into discovering microalgeas almost 20 years ago. We know how healthy fish is compared to meat, and the same actually goes for seaweed compared to vegetables. The ideá of utilizing the norwegian seaweed in food came to me many years ago when I saw a biolog sitting on the shore and reducing different seaweed to functional natural food ingredients like starch.

The Norwegian cost-line is the longest and one of the cleanest in the world. Upon the creation of the Flowfood concept, the norwegian macroalgae was not utilized as a raw material in the modern Norwegian kitchen as well as in many other countries in Europe. The potential of growing seaweed in Norway is substantial in a global perspective, and the positive environmental effects is far to high to ignore.

Seaweed is as sustainable as it gets - It aborbs a whopping 360 kilos of CO2 from the atmosphere for every ton we use! This is the only edible food I know of that has this extraodrinary climate regulating potential by growing ten times faster then vegetables at the same time capturing wast amounts of CO2. We can actually change the direction of the human carbon impact amazingly fast by just eating one or two meals of vegan/vegetarian food every week, specially when seaweed is in the mix.

Seaweed is also truly a nutritional bomb that could surprise everyone with its palpable health effects.

I belive our solution is an example on how to adress many of the challenges of the industrial food industry. There are nutritional concerns in processed foods connected to global soil depletion and a focus on profit - and there is a fast expanding need for next generation sustainable foods that will save the planet. Luckily, the food that can help restore the planet can also help restore us humans.
