As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges. Rooney’s Millbay Oysters were awarded a 3 star Great Taste Award, the highest award possible, and named in the ‘Top 50 Foods’ in 2016, our first year entering.
Our Pacific oysters are grown in the pristine waters of Carlingford Lough, close to our Kilkeel base, in Ireland. Using traditional methods we grow hatchery seed in nutrient rich waters giving us a natural product that, as you can see, looks and tastes fantastic.
Our hard work and dedication throughout the year allows us to produce beautifully shaped oysters with large plump meats. Perfect for every occasion. Our oysters are depurated in our state of the art depuration system, using the latest technology to ensure healthy and safe product for our many customers.
The oysters are depurated, cleaned, graded and packed in boxes ready to be shipped around the world to our eager customers.
