Rock Oysters

Under our Rock Oyster label, we supply a selection of Creuse oysters of Irish origin. Irish Creuse oysters are available year-round. The excellent meat content and the balance between tender and sweet are typical of our Rock Oyster. It owes these traits to the bays and areas around Ireland, where it is cultivated. These waters are rich in plankton and minerals – essential nutrients for oysters.

Ireland has a very long oyster history. Oyster shells and fossils dating back 5,000 years have been found on Irish beaches. Oysters are an important part of Irish cuisine. They are on the menu in many pubs, restaurants and market stalls, often accompanied by a delicious pint of Irish black stout.

This oyster has been selected by World of Oysters. World of Oysters is in daily contact with a selected group of passionate farmers who cultivate this oyster variety. For more information and prices, please contact us.

Juizette la Rêveuse

With its long beaches and steep chalk cliffs, Normandy is home to superb oyster grounds and has become one of the leading oyster-producing regions of France in recent decades. Aided by the significant tidal difference, the oysters filter plenty of nutrient-rich seawater every day. Juizette la Rêveuse oysters can be recognised by their hard, sturdy and slightly rougher shell. This bold oyster from Normandy has a fresh, salty taste.

Flat Oyster Dutch Imperial

Dutch Imperial

This unique Dutch oyster of exceptional quality is cultivated by the Dhooge Family (Oesterij) in Lake Grevelingen and the Eastern Scheldt. Due to the vulnerability of the Ostrea Edulis species, this oyster requires a lot of attention and care from the grower. The Dutch Imperial brand is a selection of the best flat oysters from the oyster farms in the Zeeland waters in the Netherlands. After careful selection, grading and checks, it is sold to well-known hotels and restaurants all over the world.
