We have a long term relationships with Tim of Porthilly Shellfish
and Miles of Fowey Shellfish located in the North village of Rock and the south coast town of Fowey. Our mussels are grown in the deep, clear, clean waters ofs the Cornish coast, renowned for its water clarity.
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.
