Hand Dived & Hand Picked Mussels
"Probably the best mussels I have seen outside of New Zealand!"
Fiona Were - Head Chef at The Greenbank Hotel
We are The Cornish Mussel Shack - a small family business that specialises in hand dived and hand picked mussels. We also supply sustainable seasonal foraged produce such as Samphire and Sea Beet.
Because all our mussels are picked and cleaned by hand they generally have a longer shelf life than those processed by heavy machinery. This also means as a business our carbon footprint is very low. Hand diving means we can select mussels of a good size, leaving smaller ones to grow on. Generally our mussels are two or three times bigger than the average. All mussels unsold are returned to a holding area on the river to be picked and processed again at a later date thus ensuring almost zero waste.
Mussels are available in 1 kg bags which will comfortably serve two. All of our shellfish are purified, cleaned and ready to cook. If you are interested in our unique product for your restaurant please give us a call for prices and delivery options.
