MUSSELS ARE BACK!
Why not join us for Mussels Night from 5pm on 4th October and enjoy a mussels main course and a drink for £13.99*
The golden shell Hebridean mussels we serve in our restaurants are supplied by Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd., which has been supplying customers worldwide with the best in authentic Scottish seafood products for 40 years. Mussels are a firm favourite in our restaurants - each year we serve around 100 tons of mussels to discerning seafood lovers!
At their mussel farm, Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd. takes care to harvest and release its mussels for sale only when they are in season and at their best, which is usually from now until around the end of May each year. Every batch undergoes a rigorous heath screening process to ensure that only optimum quality mussels make it to the dinner table.
The mussels are grown on ropes in the pristine waters of Loch Roag which is located far away on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. They are a natural, nutritious and delicious shellfish showcasing the very best of Scotland’s larder. By the time the mussels reach our restaurants they are well travelled, but not as well travelled as some of Loch Fyne’s mussels which are also shipped to places like Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong – making mussels a truly international food!
The company takes great care in minimising the environmental impact associated with its commercial activities. In 2017, Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd. was recognised as the first blue mussel producer in the world to receive certification against the ASC bivalve standard, awarded by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.
Managing Director of Loch Fyne Oysters, Cameron Brown said, “The award is recognition of the company’s dedication and hard work to provide ethically grown and environmentally friendly mussels to our friends at Loch Fyne Restaurants and our other valued customers around the globe. Knowing that we have ASC accreditation, customers have confidence that they are purchasing the best mussels, harvested under the best practices.”
We hope that you will take the opportunity to enjoy a plate of golden shell Hebridean mussels next time you visit one of our restaurants. You will do so, knowing that they have been grown and nurtured by a company which minimises its impact on the environment and which cares for workers and local communities.
