- Organic Ocean's Halo Sushi Nori – to satisfy growing market demand for at-home sushi products, a high-quality line of organic sushi nori will debut in the Spring 2017
- US Production Facility Now SQF Certified – Our seaweed production facility in Cerritos, California was SQF certified in the fall of 2016.
Commenting on the expansion, Ocean's Halo co-founder Robert Mock noted: "Seaweed shouldn't be boring. Consumers deserve new and interesting products and we're going to be relentless in our pursuit of product innovation. We couldn't be more excited about the dark chocolate strips, new flavored sheets and the organic nori. And stay tuned for another completely new product later this year."
