Our Team

The Agcore Team took on the challenge to develop a sustainable, environmentally friendly, low energy technology and process. Agcore succeeded in creating a year-round crop whereas other Spirulina growers located closer to the equator have to shut down during the hot summer months. The SoulFresh Proteins Team thank you for your interest and hope to be a part of your “Happy Healthy Lifestyle.”
