Come and try the 100% Belgian mussels

Colruyt Group and Brevisco are working together on a project of mussels farming off the Belgian coast. For the first time, we have been able to harvest together a large quantity of mussels. We are now inviting our customers to come and taste our 100% Belgian mussels! Take advantage of this exclusive tasting opportunity at our coastal shops and the fishmongers of our partner Brevisco Buccinum.

Be the first to taste the Belgian mussels

Visit the food stand at one of the participating stores (see map) on 12 and 13 July 2019 and try the Belgian mussels.

Why not give it a go?

Take advantage of this unique opportunity, because this unique product is not yet available in-store. We would love to hear your opinion and we hope that you like them as much as we do!

Sustainable Belgian partnerships

Partnerships with local suppliers and growers are very important to Colruyt Group. To bring this project to life, we could count on the support of our partner Brevisco and his expert Willy Versluys, pioneer in mussel farming.

Our North Sea mussels are more meaty, have a salty taste and require less cleaning than other mussels. We cultivate them close to the shore, whilst still respecting the seabed and biodiversity. This not only makes our mussels tasty, but also sustainable!

Multiple projects

Together with different partners, we are also investing in other projects in the North Sea. Together with Ghent University and various private partners, we are implementing the project Edulis in order to test the farming of mussels inbetween the wind turbines in the North Sea.

To promote the cultivation of oysters, seaweed and scallops, we joined forces with the Value@Sea project off the coast of Nieuwpoort. Thanks to this partnership, we are creating an ecosystem that mutually supports and strengthens the cultivation of various North Sea products.
