Read the full story from CNBC.

Loliware takes seaweed, mills it down and then combines it with color, minerals, and water.

Its biggest customer so far is the Cornerstone Restaurant Group, but Briganti said it is adding new partners quickly.

“Sea technology is a competitive technology to replace plastic at scale, because it’s high performing, cost competitive, scalable, and regenerative. So it’s the most sustainable alternative to plastic on the market,” said Sea Briganti, Loliware’s CEO.
