The island of Molène at the heart of our history

Blessed climate, advanced land in the heart of the waves, Brittany draws all that nature has best, invigorating and tonic to restore all its authenticity.

The Island of Molène is notably endowed with an exceptional fauna and flora, the seaweed gathering sites have more than 800 listed species, which has earned this marine area to be protected and classified as a world reserve of biosphere and labeled Man&Biosphere by UNESCO in 1988. The company BioMolenez, partner of the Algae Workshop, harvests more than 20 species of seaweed there and transforms them using innovative eco-design processes.


    Seaweed, pure sea water, plants… are harvested using traditional harvesting methods with respect for their ecology and biodiversity.

Our commitment reflects the values that are important to us: living and doing together, sharing and solidarity.

     The INIZI Foundation

The Inizi Foundation organizes a traveling cultural season on the Ponant islands which are 15 in number, spread over 6 departments - 4 regions:

  • The Chausey archipelago, in the English Channel.

  • The island of Bréhat in Côtes d'Armor.

  • Batz, Ouessant, Molène, Sein and the Glénan archipelago for Finistère.

  • Groix, Belle-Île, Houat, Hoëdic, Île-aux-Moines and Arz for Morbihan.

  • Yeu for the Vendée.

  • Aix for Charente Maritime.

During its tours, the foundation defends several objectives:

- Develop inter-generational links (involve all sections of the population, multiply the moments of encounters, see and think of the artistic encounter above all as a moment of life, living and doing together).
- Strengthen inter-island links (provoke debates, exchanges on island citizen issues or not) and highlight the richness of island life.

- Promotion of island heritage, maritime heritage, island geography

- Sensitize the community of all the islands to environmental issues

- Raising awareness of the general public on the issues and problems of the island world


The values that bring us together are living and doing together, sharing, solidarity.

Supporting SNSM our sea rescuers


From the small boater to the crew of large transoceanic vessels,

anyone can need a helping hand.
The Sea is generous as its fiery character who any can't claim to tame...
Regularly its severity falls as well on the fine connoisseur as on the imprudent.

It is then, in face of peril, that the SNSM crews sets sail to the shipwrecked.

Their professionalism, their know-how and their sense of self-sacrifice oblige us and as such we donate 50 cents per product sold.
