The PDO Mexillón de Galicia (Galician Mussel) covers the mussels that really
come from the Galician Ria Valleys and certify that they are grown according to
the traditional and natural way of the Galician Rias, based on a respectful
relationship with the environment.
Galician mussels have
organoleptic characteristics directly related to the area in which they grow, as the Galician Rias are one of the
most important phytoplankton deposits on the planet, and that abundance gives
the product a palatability, texture, flavour and colour, that differentiate
these mussels from those of a different origin.
The DOP seal indicates
that the products are from Galicia and its production, processing and
preparation takes place in the territory of the autonomous region.
