The Jersey Oyster Company

The Jersey Oyster Company was formed in 1973 as Le Socite des Produits Ostricole Jerrais, the company has farmed shellfish on the South East coast of the island since those early days.

 

The Jersey Oyster Company is owned and run by Mr Chris Le Masurier, a third generation Jersey oyster farmer, who has been involved with the business since 1998. The Company's shore based activity is conducted within a short distance of beach production areas, at the property where Mr Le Masurier's grandfather commenced an aquaculture business over forty years ago.

 

According to The Shellfish Association of Great Britain, the Company is the largest oyster growing business in Great Britain. Taking advantage of the exceptional natural advantages for oyster production in Jersey, the company exports over 700 tonnes of the finest quality oysters to France and the UK each year. The Company also produces mussels grown on upright wooden poles, known as 'Bouchot' mussels, and these are harvested in the spring.

 

Since 1999 the Company has undergone an intensive expansion programme and now maintains over 35 hectares of 'beach concession' areas, located off Jersey's south-east coast. The construction of a new purpose-built shellfish processing plant in 2011 has enabled the business to build on its reputation as a supplier and exporter of the highest quality shellfish. The new facility allows produce to be processed and packaged in accordance with the latest EU regulations and meet stringent standards of hygiene and product traceability.
