The Chilean mussel is a unique, 100% natural and high quality product.

Patagonia Mussel Featured their Prestigious Shellfish for the First Time at Seafood Expo North America

  (CHILE, 3/22/2017)

Patagonia Mussel and the four companies that make up this entity (Orizon, St. Andrews, SudMaris and Toralla) showcased their products – unique, natural and of the highest quality and nutritional value – at Seafood Expo North America for the first time ever.

The cold and clean waters of Chilean Patagonia provide an ideal environment for the Patagonia Mussels, which are recognized internationally for their taste and texture. Mussels of Patagonia are not only 100% natural, but also rich in protein, vitamins and Omega 3.

Chilean mussels are grown under strict environmental controls, in a protected and unpolluted ecosystem. 

“Mussels of Patagonia have become a prestigious representative of the best of what Chile has to offer. The pure nature from where they are cultivated is combined with high-tech harvesting methods to create a product of the highest standard,” stated Mauricio Banchieri, Trade Commissioner, ProChile New York.

The price of the Chilean Mussel is lower than the fresh Canadian product and is much more competitive in price/quality. This is the reason why Chilean Mussel has been increasing its market share explosively in recent years in Europe and Asia.

“Patagonian mussels are bred under strict environmental controls to ensure quality that impresses even the most demanding palates,” 

The cold and clean waters of Chilean Patagonia provide an ideal environment for the Patagonia Mussels.
