Simris Alg "Certified for self-care"

Simris Alg has been certified according to the quality criteria of Swedish self-care trade association, Svensk Egenvård, for safe supplements, sports and weight loss products for consumers. The audit was conducted by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).

We are very proud of the certification, as there are still only relatively few manufacturers of dietary supplements in Sweden, who have undergone this quality audit. The purpose of the certification is to accredit that consumers can trust that dietary supplements sold to them are safe. Certified companies are granted the right to carry the logo “Certified for self-care.”

Simris Alg among Sweden’s hottest technology companies

Simris Alg is one of the “33-listan” awardees, the list of Sweden’s hottest technology companies, as announced annually by the newspapers Affärsvärlden and Ny Teknik. We are extremely honoured by this award, which we received at a ceremony held in Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. As proud pioneers, we are particularly happy that more and more within both business and technology begin to realise what an important industry algae cultivation really is for the future.

The purpose of the 33-listan is to bring out the new Swedish companies that can become tomorrow’s multi-billion business and export successes. Among past examples are Mojang, that has developed the game Minecraft, and Spotify. We walk in the footsteps of giants!
