Who are we?
Since he has the day-to-day responsibility for our business, it is a good thing he has a solid background as a project manager. He has the ability to think big (Maybe even HUGE!), but still keeps his feet well-planted down on Earth.
Local knowledge, seamanship and common sense are all useful tools when Robert leads our efforts in harvesting, and drying our products. With creativity and a good head for technical solutions, he is constantly improving our routines and procedures to make our products even better and cheaper.
Jan Petter is a little extra happy to talk to new people, and is very focused on how they experience our products. That is why he has the main responsibility for marketing and the profile for both Tekslo and our product series, Sjøsaker.

Learn to use seaweed in your food
Just knowing what use to give seaweed is a challenge for many. So, we made a series of simple recipes to show you how to get more tasty seaweed and all its healthy contents back into your favorite dishes.
OUR MISSION IS TO GET SEAWEED BACK ON THE TABLE!
Where The Atlantic Ocean meets the Northern Sea, and along the coast of Norway, lies an under-used and fairly unknown natural resource. Our forefathers sustained themselves from the ocean for thousands of years, and for them seaweed was a vital source of vitamins and minerals.
All of us that started Tekslo were raised by the ocean, and together we share a dream of creating a more sustainable Earth and reverse the trends on food and health – as we introduce seaweed to the world.
Our harvest areas are located in the sea close to Tekslo lighthouse, west of the island Tofterøy on Sotra. With its perfect currents, clean clear and high-nutrient water, no fish farming or other pollutants, it is an optimal site for finding high quality seaweed!
We harvest wild seaweed by hand from reefs, rocks and islets close to the coast. This allows us to only and carefully collect the best quality. We then dry the seaweed in our custom-designed room, which was built inside a traditional boathouse.
