    • Provenance

      Our high-welfare, rope-grown mussels are from Westcountry Mussels based in St. Austell Bay in Cornwall. These mussels are grown in the highest-grade clean ocean waters, providing the very best quality mussels available. More details

    • How should I store my mussels?

      Live mussels should be stored in open containers in the fridge, loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out. The optimum storage temperature is 4-8°C. Temperatures of 1°C or lower (especially freezing temperatures less than 0°C) can kill shellfish.

       

      Do not store mussels:

      • In airtight containers (boxes or bags) because they need to breathe
      • In water or directly on ice since the fresh water may drown them

       

      Do:

      • Discard any mussels with broken or cracked shells
      • Discard any mussels if the shells are open and do not close when you tap them - live shellfish will "clam up" if their shells are tapped

       

      Please remember to dispose of the compostable greaseproof paper in your food waste bin, compost bin or garden compost. It will break down into organic material in a matter of weeks.
