Our story


Our chief scientist and microbiologist, Goran Ďorđič, sought to find a better way to support microbes where they live and work. Goran’s “Eureka” moment came when he isolated and extracted the polyuronic acid and oligosaccharides content – intact – biologically from marine algae, ascophyllum nodosum (although other raw materials could be used). Ekogea’s intellectual property, BCx, was born.

Ekogea purchases sustainably farmed ‘organic’ quality marine algae from Scotland, Norway and other North Atlantic suppliers. Ekogea (UK) has the licence to distribute Ekogea products in the UK and overseas.
