January 2011

Between Christmas and New Year we undertook one of our biggest harvests in one day with one boat, when we harvested about 30 tonnes of mussels in 8 hours! Normally in January sales take a bit of a downturn, however this year they begun and have also continued really well. During the month Jamie Oliver had a 5 minute slot on Channel 4 when he cooked up mussels in a cream sauce. "He also quoted that mussels were the ultimate sustainable food" http://www.channel4.com/programmes/jamies-fish-supper/episode-guide/series-1/episode-5 The following week our wholesale mussel sales increased between 20 - 30% compared with the previous week; Thanks Jamie!
