Highlighting the company’s commitment to environmentally conscientious practices, the oyster producer recently underwent the rigorous audit process to renew its Friend of the Sea certification.

Aiming to act as guardians of the marine environment, the company commits to evaluate its operations, exploring ways to diminish resource consumption, minimise plastic waste, and adhere to the principles of a circular economy. In doing so, it reduces its environmental footprint as well as establishing a model for widespread industry transformation.
