My Norges Vel
The backbone of Norges Vel is sustainability and community responsibility, that is great! Norges Vel has many projects they can point to as examples of success. The project between farmers in Mozambique and Den Lille Nøttefabrikken is particularly cool!
Norges Vel has had projects about algaculture in Madagascar since 2004. Now it is well on its way to being an exciting industry for Norway. Norges Vel has had a hand in the algae efforts in Norway since 2012, and I am lucky to be part of the "Algae team" and get to work with the farmers along the coast that are a part of creating an entirely new industry.
