Our Mussels

Whakatōhea Mussels are grown in one of the world's most untouched and pristine ocean environments.

New Zealand's Eastern Bay of Plenty is renown for its isolated coastlines, clear blue waters, and sunny climate. Our mussels are grown in the deep, nutrient rich, open waters surrounding this coastline, creating a culinary experience like no other.

Whakatōhea Mussels add colour, flavour, and visual appeal to any plate. You can enjoy baked, barbequed, steamed, smoked, or fried. This is an incredibly versatile cuisine with all the added nutritional benefits.

Order now to experience our Whakatōhea Mussels - delivered overnight and fresh to your door.


  • Refrigerate in an open container and cover with a damp cloth. Live mussels need to breathe so don’t store them in a plastic bag or immersed in water.

  • Use within 24 hours of delivery. 


  • Inspect each mussel before consuming. Discard any cracked, broken or open shells. If in doubt, follow your nose.

  • Rinse, scrub and pull out the beard from each mussel (you can skip this step if you’re not planning to eat the broth). 

  • This product is intended to be cooked before consumption.
