Belbin Native Seafoods is a rapidly growing, highly reputable seafood supplier owned and run by Dale and Louise. Belbin Native Seafoods supply a wide range of locally sourced seafood but specialise in local Mersea Oysters due to the fantastic reputation these oysters have throughout restaurants and homes across the country.
What makes us different?
Unusually, Dale is a first-generation oysterman which has given him a unique perspective on this traditional craft. Dale, together with his partner Louise, have developed their business with a refreshing, down to earth approach that prioritises sustainability and quality. They also see the low overheads, and wide reach of the internet, as a natural way to sell their high-quality seafood.
What we do Best
Belbin Native Seafoods have developed a knack for catching the very best oysters in their boat and processing them in a unique manner designed to maximise flavour and minimise contamination. This approach has resulted in a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 and their oysters test below the lowest detectable e-coli levels. Oysters are kept in tanks with water transported by bowser from the sea, which utilises the same water that they grow in naturally.
"Belbin Seafoods of Ardleigh sell first-rate, plump, juicy and delicious Mersea oysters, both rock and natives. If you're a true East-coast-oyster lover, look no further."
