Product of the Month: Australia’s Native Rock Oyster

Blue Harvest is proud to announce we will be managing the sales and marketing for approximately 15 rock oyster farms moving forward, and possibly more. xxxx The industry has historically managed sales and marketing on a farm by farm basis, with limited strategic planning and this has created continued volatile market conditions for both the growers and their customers. xxxx We aim to streamline this, and move the focus from in and out trading to a stable supply, quality first approach, where the oysters are the champions, and market growth can support industry growth.
