the goodness


We capture nature’s healing

properties of our New Zealand

green-lipped mussels and

create natural health products

that enable people to live well.



Harnessing nature’s



Green lipped mussels are renowned

for their anti-inflammatory properties

that are beneficial in the management

of various health conditions.

Our unique patented processes enable

us to maximise the preservation of these

properties and create the

highest quality product.





Farming without

a trace


We grow our green-lipped mussels

in the pristine waters of the

Marlborough Sounds, Tasman Bay and

Golden Bay. As filter feeders they receive all

their nutrients from the seawater – nothing

else needs to be added. Growing green-lipped

mussels is highly sustainable with

low environmental impact.
