Company description

PT. Rote Karaginan Nusantara (RKN) is a family owned enterprise established in 2016.

Our headquarters houses the largest food ingredient processing plant
in the region and the first of its kind. It is located 25km south of Kupang, the capital of Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), a province deep in the southeast of Indonesia.

We are dedicated to producing the best quality carrageenan from the best sources of quality seaweed. We only accept materials that meet our stringent requirements. We analyse and process them in compliance with food safety standards, all led by our highly qualified personnel with many years of experience in the carrageenan industry

Our primary produce is Technical and Food Grade Kappa and Iota Semi-refined Carrageenan customized to meet our clients individual specifications.

One of the goals in setting up RKN was to support sustainable sea farming practices for the more than 5000 seaweed farmers that we work with.

From the Rote-Flores-Alor areas in the NTT province all the way to the Kei archipelago in the Maluku province, RKN provides training, seaweed seedlings and lines for establishing seaweed farms to local communities.

RKNs' cargo vessel sails out from Kupang to supply our associate farmers on remote islands with food, medicine and other basic necessities and collect the raw dried seaweed to be delivered to our factory in Kupang.

We offer true end-to-end traceability, providing granular data at every step of the supply chain. We have full traceability of our products' origins, from the raw materials up to the finished product and we are the only company in Indonesia able to do so.

All our practices are guided by the belief that the sustainability of the sea and her ecosystems goes hand in hand with business sustainability.
