Juicy, sweet and full of flavour
Our Greenshell Mussels are farmed in New Zealand using mussel lines suspended from ropes. This means that the mussel seeds are attached to lines that are then suspended above the seabed.
The result? An amazing mussel with a large shell and lots of deliciously juicy and sweet flavoured meat. It’s also brimming with protein. In fact, 100 grams of Greenshell Mussels is equivalent to a quarter of your daily recommended intake.
These mussels are boiled and frozen after harvesting. The mussel also comes in half a shell making it an ideal product for au gratin dishes and stir frying.
