Kinkawooka Mussels are grown in the Mediterranean style to be small, soft and sweet. Unlike big oceanic mussels from open water farming, the true quality of the Bay grown mussel lies in it’s eating quality. At the start of the season in June, Kinkawooka mussels are typically “petit” with 60-70 pieces per kilo and a meat to shell ratio of nearly 50 per cent. As the harvest year continues, the mussels grow in size to 30-35 pieces per kilo by March. The Quality Control system operated by Kinkawooka Mussels ensure that the meat to shell ratio remains high throughout the season, but importantly that there is always an excellent eating mussel.
SUSTAINABLE & SAFE
South Australian mussel farming has minimal impact on the environment and we are moving to carbon neutral in every aspect of our business. Quality control is fundamental to the success of the company. With co-operative links with South Australian Universities and seafood research agencies worldwide, coupled with our own state of the art quality control laboratories, all of our mussels far exceed the required food safety standards.
Daily monitoring of the water temperatures, nutrients and mussel condition across all growing areas in Boston bay, ensures that only mussels in premium condition are harvested by Eyre Peninsula Seafoods. Using automated harvesting equipment, the mussels are removed from the growing lines, graded and cleaned before being transported to the purpose built processing facility in Port Lincoln. Processed within hours of harvest, the culinary quality of the mussels is captured through a combination of traditional handling and contemporary technology. At every step, the culinary quality and suitability of the mussels is the focus.
