Invest Now in Our Crowdfunding Campaign

Co-founders Fiona Houston and Xa Milne encouraging Crowdcube investment

Can you help us raise £500,000?

Today we launched our crowdfunding campaign on the Crowdcube fundraising platform! We've already raised £232,425 in one day, but can you help us reach our £500,000 investment target?

Let's grow Mara Seaweed

Your investment will be used to support the growth of the business into export markets, build our production capacity, and to develop our new product pipeline.

We've taken one of Britain’s undervalued natural resources – seaweed – and transformed it into a premium food brand. Our mission now: to make Mara a must-have in your daily diet -– as commonplace as salt or ketchup.

Choose your reward

Here are some of the rewards on offer to anyone who invests – you can invest anything from £100 and get 4 shares, up to £200,000 for 5.48% of the company! Please visit our investment page on Crowdcube.
