In 1976 a group of U.S. visionary pioneers, founded a company to develop spirulina, a blue-green algae, as a world food resource, funded by a group of private California investors committed to the vision and hope spirulina represented. This team began cultivation in the hot desert area in Southeastern part of California and later changed the company name to Earthrise Nutritionals.
In 1981, Earthrise developed a partnership with a Japanese company, Dainippon Ink and Chemicals (DIC), a diversified product company with a commitment to developing micro-algae for food, biochemicals and pharmaceuticals that had just begun growing spirulina in Thailand. This unique partnership between California entrepreneurs and Japanese corporate intrapreneurs flourished to a dynamic growth of spirulina production as well as its market worldwide. In 2005, Earthrise Nutritionals was wholly owned by Dainippon Ink and Chemicals. (the present DIC corporation).
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is one of the most densely nutrient packed superfoods on earth. This amazing environmentally sustainable algae has been a nutritious dietary supplement for thousands of years.
Today, our farm is the world's largest spirulina farm, and together with our sister company's farm in China, DIC group is the largest spirulina producer in the world.
