The Mills Bay Culture
From the place we call home. Where we work, play and commute, a succulent crop of sea-farmed goodness carefully nurtured and sustainably harvested from the ocean depths. No additives. No preservatives. Our labour of love.
At Mills Bay Mussels we are on a mission to spread happiness through our delicious, healthy food; New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels.
We pride ourselves in the work that we do and the beautiful food we produce & deliver to our customers, all over New Zealand.
Our clear set of values guides our decisions every day…
All of our mussels are hand graded, packed, prepared and served with love by our Local team in Havelock – the Greenshell™ Mussel Capital of the World!!
Our mussels are grown on our farms in the Marlborough Sounds. They start off as microscopic spat and are grown out for up to 2 years. When they are in their best condition they are harvested and sent out to our customers as quickly as possible, to ensure they are super fresh when they arrive. Mills Bay Mussel’s farms collaborate with other mussel farms to guarantee a consistent supply, the mussels are then sent to our factory for premium grading.
