We operate oyster farms from the Far North through to the Marlborough Sounds, with one of the strictest water quality assurance programmes for shellfish in the world.
Our factories operate under strict food safety plans and processes with full product traceability back to time and date of harvest and specific oyster farm. This allows us to deliver the highest quality oyster, safe to eat in their natural raw state as certified by New Zealand food safety officials.
Our pure, untainted coastal waters are naturally nurtrient rich, requiring no additional feed to produce plump, deep cupped oysters with a fresh, clean taste and rare vitality.
New Zealand Pacific oysters (sp. Crassostrea Gigas) are deep shelled and evenly shaped producing plump meat and fresh, crisp flavours with a sweet creamy finish. They are farmed naturally in harbours throughout New Zealand’s Northland, Hauraki Gulf and Marlborough Sounds. These specially selected sites contain cool, pure, nutrient rich waters that grow a distinctly flavoured oyster perfectly suited for raw/sashimi applications.
As a fully Māori-owned company, we abide by the customary principle of kaitiakitanga (guardianship and conservation).
_we ensure the lightest touch possible in caring for and harvesting our oysters to ensure not just a better product but the inter-generation sustainability of this natural taonga (treasure).
