Canadian Cove - Frozen Mussel Packs

By: Atlantic Aqua Farms  09-12-2011

Canadian Cove Frozen Mussels

We start frozen production in September and stop in May before the mussels go into their spawning cycle. We produce a one and two pound pre-cooked vacuum packed product in several size ranges.

We believe there are several points which set our frozen mussels apart.

  1. Only high quality Canadian Cove mussels are selected for processing.
  2. We believe both the flavor and texture of our mussel meat is superior to all other origins.
  3. Our shells are slightly thicker and reduce the likelihood of splintering during processing.
  4. When our frozen mussels are reconstituted they pop open.

Canadian Cove - The Canadian Cove Difference

In addition we have long-standing relationships with independent growers, ensuring a consistent supply of the world's best mussels year-round. This guarantees our customers continuity of supply even when the weather is poor and the boats can't get out to harvest. Every mussel lot goes through our quality control lab to ensure it meets our high standards. We are the largest fully-integrated grower and processor of live mussels in North America.


Canadian Cove - Oyster Packs

Long recognized as one of the world's finest oysters, Malpeques from Prince Edwards Island have unequalled taste, appearance and shelf life. Since the early 1800s Malpeque oysters have been harvested in the protected bays and estuaries using traditional hand held rakes and tongs. Locate the hinge and insert an oyster knife between the shells, working it back and forth gently until it is well inside the shell.


Canadian Cove - High Oxygen Tray Packs

The company developed the process over 8 years of in house and third party lab experimentation and trials with different gas mixes and packaging combinations to provide the optimum conditions for product quality and shelf life. Supported by third party laboratory microbiological analysis, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has granted our packs up to an 18 day shelf life.


Canadian Cove - Fresh Mussel Packs

Mussels love to be buried in ice and this is by far the best way to store them, provided that the ice melt water is allowed to drain. Our products will be branded as "Canadian Cove" or shall be Atlantic Aqua Farms produced and private labeled for customers. Mussels stay fresh 14 days from pack date, provided proper temperatures and storage techniques are maintained.
