Courtney Boyd Myers, who has been a competitive swimmer her entire life and participates in open water swimming whenever she can, is even more impressive on dryland.

She was named one of Fast Company Magazine’s most creative people for founding AKUA and its Kelp Jerky as well as serving as a Director at Summit and Partner at Unframed Ice Cream.

Myers explains, “At AKUA, we’re creating food in the right way – Kelp Jerky that is healthy and delicious, making a positive impact on the planet. This year, we’re launching a new wave of plant-based cuisine.

Our product is made from sustainably harvested ocean seagreens. We aim to change your perception of sustainable seafood by working with the plants that grow just beyond every shoreline in the world.

Seaweed farming has the potential to be the most sustainable form of agriculture on the planet. It requires no fresh water, no land, no deforestation, and no feed or fertilizer to grow.”
