Please note:

  • These mussels need to be cleaned and debeared. See below for a more detailed process.
  • Consume within 4 days of harvested date found on box.

How to Clean

Here is a quick video tutorial on how to clean mussels.

How to Handle

  1. Remove contents, place in an open container and cover with a damp cloth.
  2. Best before: use within 4 days of the harvest / packed date which can be found on the top of your box.
  3. Do not freeze produce, mussels can only be frozen after cooking!
  4. Do not submerge mussels in water, even during the cooking process. Just simply rinse them under the tap with cold water.
  5. You can draw from the product as you wish within 4 days of the pack date, that way you can enjoy mussel on more than one occasion.
