! Contains fish/fish products and molluscs !
Our Manilla clams are harvested from the waters off the south coast in sandy beach areas & shallow waters.
All molluscs are depurated to ensure they are full of flavour and safe to eat. Depuration is the process where, over a given period of time (normally 42 hours), shellfish are contained in salt water tanks, with the water pumped over ultraviolet light to reduce any bacteria that may be present within the animal to the lowest levels possible. This process is monitored by Environmental Health Officers and DEFRA.
