Spirulina Viva was founded in 2010 by Francisco Portillo Rangel and Katherine Kohlstedt, with the mission of cultivating the best fresh and 100% Mexican spirulina. The first family owned and operated algae microfarm in Mexico. They have clean air, best quality water, abundant sunshine and friendly people. They are passionate about spirulina, a pre-Hispanic crop native to Mexico, a superfood of the Mexicans.

Robert Henrikson visited Spirulina Viva in 2015. Here, on their homestead near San Miguel de Allende, Katie and Paco with their two boys, produce fresh and dried spirulina and sell fresh spirulina and healthy spirulina snack foods direct to the local community in San Miguel, through retail health shops and by express mail all across Mexico.
