At AKUA, we're creating food in the right way - healthy and delicious with a positive impact on the planet.

This year, we’re launching a new wave of plant-based cuisine made from sustainably harvested ocean seagreens.

We aim to change your perception of sustainable seafood by working with the plants that grow just beyond every shoreline in the world.


Kelp Jerky


Coming Soon



Our first product is Kelp Jerky - a delicious, nutrient dense, high protein snack made with locally harvested kelp, top quality shiitake and crimini mushroom stems from all over the Northeast, and superfoods.  

Kelp Jerky is vegan, non-GMO, and free of dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, and gluten.

My mouth is hit with pleasant brine, salty notes, an almost corn-tortilla chip of the sea taste but softer and chewier as I bite into a piece of sea salt kelp jerky.
