The best selection from the Galician estuaries
All of our mussels come from the Galician estuaries and are internationally renowned for their quality. They are nutritious and have a great colour and intense flavour.
We wait until the ideal time of year – end of summer – to begin picking them from the best mussel platforms. Our mussels are collected in their prime, when they are fleshy and full of flavour.
We preserve them using traditional methods and natural ingredients, taking maximum care of every detail of the process.
Prepared from fresh
Thanks to the privileged location of our plant in A Pobra do Caramiñal, in the heart of the cultivation area, north shore of Ría de Arosa, freshness and an ideal production process can be guaranteed.
Our mussels are transported straight from the mussel platform to our processing plant. Once they have been cleaned and classified according to size, they are fried in olive oil and hand packed. Finally, they are preserved in our traditional escabeche.
Mussels from the Ría de Arosa have a distinctive, intense bright orange colour. Thanks to our careful selection and preservation they also have a great meaty texture.
The size of the mussels depends on the length of time they have grown on the platform, the location of the platform itself, and – above all – the season when they are harvested.
Four different sizes are available:
Grown for approximately 12 months on the platform.
Larger, more tender mussels.
Grown for approximately 18 months on the platform.
Very large, firm mussels with a subtle flavour.
Grown for approximately 24 months on the platform.
Extra large sizes
Extremely large, fleshy, flavourful mussels.
Grown for approximately 36 months on the platform.
