Earthrise Nutritionals

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).
