In addition to our zero waste policy CMD Industries also took note of the critical importance of proper management of its wild harvesting processes and the environmental risk it posed. South Africa’s Kelp forests has been recognised as a Wonder of The world and the ecosystems they create and support.

As such we appreciate the need to tread softly. Wild Harvesting primarily utilize fronds to allow the plants to continue regenerating as well as safeguarding the submersed ecosystem. In addition to CMD Industries own efforts South Africa’s concession system also only permits 10% of total biomass which further supports the sustainability effort. The Kelp Forrest’s role is considerably more than simply a raw material source – and this we respect.
