About Us

Owners John and Anne Louden have owned the Coromandel Oyster Company Ltd since February 2007.

 

They have, what is described as a vertically integrated business where they catch and farm wild oysters then harvest, process and  distribute nationwide as well as retail through their quaint little oyster shack on the main highway into Coromandel town.

 

The main oyster farm is 2 hectares behind the shop (lease 310) an inter-tidal area that at any given time there is around 40,000 dozen on the farm.

 

There is also a sub-tidal mussel long-line where they grow oysters in deeper water, and an inter-tidal 8 ha ‘nursery farm’ on the East Coast in Whangapoua.
