IFF partners with NGO Bellona to restore Norwegian seaweed forests

IFF is proud to partner with Bellona, an environmental non-governmental organization, on the Norwegian Marine Restoration Project (NoMaRe) to restore the seaweed forest along the Norwegian coastline. The project aims to reduce worldwide emissions, create sustainable jobs and promote environmentally friendly products on a global scale. This collaboration is an example of how businesses, NGOs, research communities and governments can work together to champion sustainability.

IFF is committed to doing more good and giving back to the communities in which we work and live. We look forward to contributing to research, restoration measures and awareness, to identify and promote environmentally sustainable solutions.
