Processing

Blueshell has invested over £3m in farming and processing infrastructure over the past 10 years. The unique type of mussel and growing conditions have meant that we have had to source specialised bespoke growing and processing equipment and machinery from all over the World.

While we rely on machinery to do a lot of the unpleasant hard work, there is no substitute for that personal touch. Blueshell’s experienced quality operatives carry out a visual inspection and hand grading of every mussel prior to packing.

Mussels which are undersize are collected and re-socked on the site for on-growing to market size; we have special machines and trained staff who undertake this clever process.

Blueshell is currently undergoing an additional two-year £1m investment programme to develop the efficiency and quality of our mussels. This will result in us offering several innovations for our customers, please watch this space for details.
