Seapoint Farms was founded in the year 1996. It was the first company in the United States to focus on promoting and marketing edamame to U.S. supermarkets, grocery stores and health food retail shops. The foundation of Seapoint Farms was of great significance in the public’s education about the health benefits of edamame. From being the first edamame company in the country, Seapoint Farms has now become a leading brand when it comes to edamame products sold in the market.
In 1999, the Food and Drug Administration concluded that foods that contain soy protein may help lower the risk of coronary heart conditions by reducing blood cholesterol. During this time, Seapoint Farms became even more well known, as it became an instrument in educating the public about the benefits of soy to consumers’ health. The company’s products also offered consumers of a great vegetable alternative with its edamame products.
In January of 2007, Seapoint Farms went into an agreement for multi-year licensing with Viacom/Nickelodeon. This partnership produced a new line of ‘Thaw & Serve’ products that targeted parents and kids with its promotions. The new products were called Organic Kid’s pack of Edamame, with such labels as Sponge Bob Square Pants Edamame Pods and Dora the Explorer Shelled Edamame. With these kid-friendly products, the company aimed to promote healthy eating even at a young age.
Currently, the company is the country’s biggest manufacturer and importer of edamame products. Its products are all of high quality, convenient and great tasting, from edamame vegetable items to edamame snacks. Seapoint Farms offers products like edamame, Veggie Blends, Dry-Roasted edamame and Club Packs. These products are sold in various retail stores nationwide, as well as through online shopping sites.
Ever since its inception, Seapoint Farms has only used non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) soybeans. The company’s products keep their isoflavones and soy protein at their naturally occurring levels. The company’s mission has always been to offer convenient, delicious and organic edamame products so that it will be easy for consumers to integrate the health benefits that soy can provide in one’s everyday diet.
