About Us
AKUA is a mission-driven food company working to replace the most unsustainable form of food agriculture (factory farming) with the most sustainable form of food agriculture (ocean farming). We have been recognized by Time Magazine, Fast Company, and Travel & Leisure as pioneers in the sustainable food industry for our work to create a new market of meat-alt products made from ocean-farmed kelp. Our vision is to create a platform of clean-label, meat-alternative products including Kelp Burgers, Kelp Nuggets, Kelp Sausages, Kelp Crab Cakes, Kelp Balls, and more that are sold online, in retail, and through food service and restaurants around the world. We are also a Public Benefit Corporation with a vision of becoming a B-Corp when bandwidth allows.

To date, we have built strong D2C sales channels and we are just now pushing into retail regionally with the support of a robust sales team. Our marketing department is supported by a CMO (also the CEO), a full-time Sales & Marketing Manager, a performance marketing agency, a Google ads consultant, a social media content consultant, a video content team, and a web development & design team. We have also worked with PR & influencer marketing agencies that can be hired as needed.
