As Australia's largest producer of premium mussels we are proud to distribute our products across the country and around the world. We deliver ocean fresh mussels all year round.
Our aim is to produce the best quality Australian blue mussels for the world.
As one of Australia’s largest mussel producers, we pride ourselves on innovative farming practices, high standards of food safety and processing technology.
All our premium mussels are certified organic and preservative free.
And we hand grade the mussels… that means we pass our eyes over every mussel before we pack them. Only the best mussels make it from water to plate.
We test regularly, with a focus on water temperature, nutrients and mussel conditions. In fact, we insist on exceeding food and water quality standards.
At Eyre Peninsula Seafoods, we produce around 1,000 tonnes of premium quality mussels every year. That’s nearly 40 million mussels that we distribute to suppliers across Australia and the world.
We have purposefully spread our mussel farms over 350 hectares of pristine waters of Boston Bay.
That’s an area four times the size of Sydney Harbour. This gives us the advantage of selecting only the best live mussels to harvest.
When compared to other meat produce, the growth cycle of a mussel is rapid, taking from 6-12 months to mature. This gives us the ability to quickly adapt to changing demands in the market and increase our supply when needed.
We produce premium mussels all year round. And whilst the shell size varies due to changes in seasonal weather conditions, our mussels retain the same quality and flavour. No matter the time of year.
We developed our innovative SeaSure packaging for the protection of the live mussels. By minimising the stress the mussel endures from water to plate, we deliver a premium eating mussel is consistently and continuously to you.
And with our proprietary brand offering, you can develop your own branded packaging for use in foodservice distribution or retail.

We take care of everything – we grow, harvest and distribute our premium mussels to market. That means we have oversight of the entire process.
Our focus is to maintain a smooth and efficient production process so you can get the supply you want… when you need it.
We ship directly to market using refrigerated trucks or via airfreight to domestic and international markets. Our mussels come to you chilled and fresh.
We look globally to best practices for our farming and processing… and then we make it our own. From the use of New Zealand technology on the water, to the latest German, Dutch and US processing and packing machinery, every aspect of our operation has been pioneering, for the South Australian – and Australian – mussel farming industry.

If you’ve ever been to Belgium, you would have heard the saying “Belgian people cook with the finesse of the French but eat with the passion and portion size of the Germans,” or something along these lines. From the marauding days of the Vikings, Romans and Spanish, to the delicate touch of the French and the love of the amber brew from the Germans, the Belgian food scene has many influences. Their passion for beer and mussels is as traditional as any heritage found throughout the European continent.
