New Zealand’s beautiful, isolated islands are surrounded by some of the most pristine waters and abundant seafood in the world. As a nation, we prize what we have here and we’re passionate about managing it sustainably for generations to come. At Sanford we treat our seafood with the respect it deserves and will continue to take care of it for future generations to enjoy.
New Zealand Dark green Mussel shells have a unique blend of yellow, red, and brown streaks on the outer shell. The inside shell is iridescent complimenting the high meat to shell ratio. The meat for the males will have a creamy-white flesh while mature females have an apricot-orange color flesh.
Farmed and harvested sustainably from the South Island waters, Greenshell Mussels are available year-round. The whole Mussels are processed, graded, quality checked, packed live and chilled with no additives or processing aids.
New Zealand Greenshell Mussels have no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Once they are packaged, they are treated with MAP, breathable package and
placed into cold storage.
