Compañia Española de Algas Marinas (CEAMSA) was established in 1966 in O Porriño, Spain. Since the beginning, this innovative and specialized company has dedicated its activities to production, development and worldwide distribution of natural hydrocolloids in the five continents. Nowadays, CEAMSA products (carrageenan, pectin, ﬁbre, alginate and refined locust bean gum), are demanded in the different markets due to their stabilizing, gel forming, thickening and texturizing properties. CEAMSA’s five decades of experience have driven the Company to become the world leader in the production of carrageenan, a natural jellifying agent extracted from red seaweed; the use of which, among others, is extensively applied in the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and in cosmetics. Its production plants, located in Spain and in the Philippines, are based on self-developed technology, to meet the worldwide market needs.
