The company Conservas Antonio Pérez Lafuente has just received a shipment of eco-friendly mussels from two cultivation areas in the waters of Ria de Arousa, in order to begin marketing under the technical supervision of the Regulatory Council of Organic Agriculture in Galicia (Craega).

Craega is the agency responsible for certifying the origin of the product and protocol compliance.

According to the president of the organization, Ernesto Sanchez, ecological mussels need the characteristics of excellent seeds and for the water to have an "appropriate quality." In addition, the operation must meet the "conditions of sustainability."

He also said that the European Union (EU) decides the type of paint that must be used on the rafts, conditions of transport trucks and the oil used in packaging, which must be organic, among other issues to ensure the success of the certification process, reports the EFE news agency.

Eco mussels, which are canned and then sent to markets in central Europe, were collected by fishermen which are part of the San Amaro organization, based in Vilanova de Arousa.

The first cans of 'mejillón ecológico en escabeche ecológico' will be presented between 11 and 12 November in Berlin, Germany, said Eduardo Dromer, director of Pérez Lafuente.

"The markets of central Europe are the most demanding of these items," said the businessman.

"Given the slowdown that this industry is suffering from, organic products are selling better," Dromer said.

For now, the cannery purchased 12 tonnes of eco mussels, so it is expected that the rest of the molluscs produced by the fishermen will be frozen and sold in central European markets, reports the newspaper La Voz de Galicia.
