Your safety is assured through one of the strictest quality assurance programmes for shellfish in the world.

New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels are enjoyed as a delicacy throughout the world. As well as their culinary versatility and desirable flavour profile, there’s also the added factor of confidence.

New Zealand operates one of the strictest quality assurance programmes for shellfish in the world, testing both the shellfish and the water in which it grows for biotoxins, bacteria and heavy metals. Water quality is rigorously and constantly monitored with testing carried out to specifications and standards set by the U.S Food and Drug Administration, European Union and NZ Food Safety Authority. Under this stringent monitoring programme, no product can be harvested from farms without confirmation that the water and shellfish testing during the growing cycle and environmental monitoring have declared it safe.
