Mara's seaweed-sesame fusion came top in health category at Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards
We were delighted to receive another accolade at the Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards last night (May 18), where our Furikake was awarded top spot in the Healthy Choice category.
The perfect combination
Mara's special blend of hand harvested dulse, chilli flakes and sesame seeds was deemed by the judges to be a perfect balance of taste and nutritional benefits, in an easy-to-use format. Hurrah!
By combining dulse with other ingredients with which consumers are more familiar, Furikake provides novice seaweed eaters with a delicious introduction to edible seaweed. It allows them to access the powerful nutritional benefits of dulse, which is high in iodine, iron, magnesium, potassium and protein, all in an easy-to-use seasoning.
Try it for yourself
Mara Sea-EO Fiona Houston and General Manager Niall Wright were there to receive the award at the prestigious event which took place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre:
"Mara is bringing an ancient superfood to the customer in a format that’s easy-to-use and understand – a shake-on seasoning. We believe that our seaweed is relevant to consumers who want to buy products with both great taste and fantastic nutritional benefits. As well as enhancing the flavour of food, Mara Seaweed offers a way of reducing salt while adding a superboost of healthy essential minerals, fibre and protein."
Mara Furikake is exclusively available in Morrisons supermarkets nationwide.
...but to celebrate our win, we're giving away 3 x 2g sachets of our Furikake with every order placed before midnight on Sunday!
