        The constant flow of the Atlantic around the island also helps shape each oyster into
        a perfect tear-drop shape with a very strong shell and a smooth pearly white enamel.
        Oysters from Ireland are rich in protein and low in fat with exceptionally high levels
        of trace elements such as iodine, iron, selenium copper and zinc. Coupled with the
        unspoilt growing conditions available in Ireland this is as natural and pure as food can
        The quality of Irish oysters is globally recognised along with the quality of our
        environmental performance which is based on the principles of sustainable aquaculture.
        All of the oyster producers profiled in this directory are verified members of Origin
        Green which is the only sustainability programme in the world that operates on a
        national scale.  Independently verified, it enables Ireland’s producers to set and achieve
        measurable sustainability targets – reducing environmental impact, serving local
        communities more effectively and protecting the extraordinarily rich natural resources
        that our country enjoys.
