Shell Fish

Cockles, oysters and scallops are harvested from the sparkling clear waters of New Zealand’s Tasman and Golden Bays and delivered direct to Talley’s nearby factories for immediate processing.

Talley’s does not soak or use artificial additives when processing shellfish. Customers get just pure 100% natural shellfish. Oysters and scallops are opened, cleaned and graded. They are then either quick frozen or delivered fresh daily to make sure their full, succulent flavour is retained. All shellfish are independently tested to be free of bio-toxins before shipment.
