The two largest industries in the world are food and energy. Today, we’re realizing that both need a radical makeover, ensuring that they employ more environmentally-friendly and sustainable processes.
Our founder, Larry Dressler, grew up working in the agriculture world, providing refined vegetable oils to bakeries, restaurants and food product manufacturers. In 2010, Larry decided it was time for a change. He and his team built an innovative algae-to-energy test farm but as energy prices declined, Larry decided to make a pivot away from renewable fuel to proteins, the human fuel.
In 2013, Larry started Agcore Technologies, a company dedicated to growing a high protein alga that could be used in human and animal nutrition. Larry fell in love with Non-GMO Spirulina, a blue-green micro-alga that many professionals feel is the healthiest food known to man; but experts said it could never be grown in the New England climate. The Agcore Team took on the challenge, developing a sustainable, environmentally friendly, low energy technology and process. On top of these achievements, Agcore succeeded in creating a year-round crop, whereas other Spirulina growers located closer to the equator have to shut down during the hot summer months.
Next, Agcore needed a brand that accurately defined both their product and mission, and SoulFresh Proteins was born. Our Spirulina provides nourishment for the mind, body and “Soul.” Our product is harvested daily, dried at low temperatures, packaged and shipped to customers providing a very “Fresh” product.
A considerable amount of the spirulina currently sold in the US is produced overseas, where it is stored and shipped over long periods of time. Many of these growers employ environmentally unfriendly business models with a considerable carbon footprint. We are proud to have achieved our goal of supplying a sustainable plant-based “Protein” that is superior to other comparable products and provides excellent nourishment to our customers.
The SoulFresh Proteins Team thanks you for your interest and hopes to be a part of your happy, healthy lifestyle. SoulFresh Proteins: This Is What Healthy Looks Like.
