A highly sustainable shellfish, we source our delicious live mussels from a family run producer in the Teign estuary, Devon. These quality mussels are rope-grown and come packaged in specially sealed trays (please read care instructions below) to keep them as fresh as possible and allow a drip free product with easy storage.
Please note, due to many different factors such as bad weather conditions, seasonality and unprecedented demand. Mussels may be replaced from a different source.
Fresh Mussels are a great source of important vitamins. Their levels of iron and folic acid is comparable to that of red meat. Mussels are also a rich source of zinc.
- Large Mussels, juicy and plump

As a live fresh product, it is best to consume within 3 days. Please store in the refrigerator, do not freeze the product.
Instructions upon delivery: After opening the packet, some mussels may appear open and assumed dead. However, this is usually not the case and is quite common with MAP pack live shellfish. Fully submerge the mussels in cold clean tap water for a few minutes. Then drain and discard any broken mussels or mussels that remain wide open (it is normal for MAP packed mussels to remain slightly open and not respond much when tapped or squeezed). Once opened and briefly left to air, the mussels should smell fresh with no unpleasant or strong odours.
