We think everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy some kind of garden or grow their own food and to do it naturally. We want every kid to get their hands dirty and discover that tomatoes don’t grow in the supermarket. And we want all of you to feel confident that you can create a beautiful garden in the wet, the dry and everything in between. So we make products to help you do just that. Beyond the home garden, our products have been trialled and tested in fields by farmers, orchardists and commercial growers who have been using our products for over 40 years.
Seasol is still 100% Australian made and owned and organically certified. Eric remains a driving force behind the business, along with his daughter and Company Director Lisa Boyd. The company employs over 60 people and is the only seaweed company on the retail market that takes its product from harvest to manufacture.
Seasol’s range of home garden products has expanded into the granular market with the introduction of PowerFeed with Troforte microbe technology in 2015, and PowerFeed LawnFeed, PowerFeed Controlled Release Plant Food. These product are boosted with seaweed and beneficial microbes which improve the soil structure and aids nutrient uptake by the plants.
The commercial arm of the business continues to thrive and with significant resources going into R&D, Seasol is proud to be associated with some of the biggest farms and commercial growers in the country. Seasol’s commercial farming range has continued to expand with the addition of PastureMasta, Humate plus, Seasol plus Iron and our own patented Seasol plus Calcium and several blended products, designed for farmers and commercial growers to increase yields and improve growth and performance in their crops and pastures.
Having pioneered the seaweed category, we are passionate about our products, but we are equally passionate and committed to our people. It’s the people who have made this business successful and as we strive to be recognised as a workplace of choice (quite uncommon in the manufacturing sector) we are very clear about the environment we want to maintain…an environment that is safe, fair, fun, supportive, honest and respectful…an environment where everyone is heard, and everyone gets to share in the company’s success.
…and on the subject of fun, we don’t mind a good party either.
