Galician Mussel

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.
