Ocean’s Halo Partners with Smile Compostable Solutions® for Sustainable Broth Pods

Ocean’s Halo is further immersing itself into the new era of sustainability by acquiring the license to use BPI Certified Commercially Compostable pods from Smile Compostable Solutions® for its vegan quick-cup broths. Product innovation is core for the brand. This move augments Ocean Halo’s cause to reduce the use of plastic in its products, protecting oceans for future generations. Last year, the brand led the category by removing plastic tray packaging from its popular seaweed snacks.

Ocean’s Halo use of the pod allows the company to expand its product offerings into a new market without creating more plastic pollution. The pod is compatible with Keurig Brewers and meets or exceeds all state regulations. Ocean’s Halo is currently offering pods of its all-purpose No Chicken and No Beef Broths.

“Having a leader in the healthy snack category use our pod system to further its sustainability goals is an honor,” said CEO and Co-Founder Michael Sands. “Smile is looking forward to working with Ocean’s Halo further for other sustainable packaging initiatives.”

Ocean’s Halo is swimming against the tide to change how the world snacks. With a brand launch in 2014, the company is a fast-growing, Asian-inspired brand, committed to making the world a happier and healthier place. Its product lines of seaweed snacks, broth, noodles, and sauces are all USDA-certified organic, non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. Grounded in a commitment to sustainability and bettering the environment, Ocean’s Halo donates to ocean conservation initiatives via 1% of the Planet, an organization that inspires businesses and individuals to support the environment.

“As a leading challenger brand, Ocean’s Halo demonstrates our commitment to sustainable innovation and makes waves in our category simply by bringing these earth-friendly packaging formats and delicious recipes to the shelves of your local market,” said CEO and Co-Founder Robert Mock. “Ocean’s Halo is appreciative of the partnership with Whole Foods Market for supporting our innovation and sharing that Ocean’s Halo compostable broth pods were included in Whole Foods Market’s 2023 Trends report.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
