recipe for Cassoulet of Loch Fyne Mussels comes from the
Fyne Oysters Shop.
Loch Fyne started with one inspirational idea - to grow
oysters in the clear, fertile waters of Loch Fyne - and
has developed into a cluster of businesses whose success
is built on an honest approach to superb quality food.
All Loch Fyne businesses abide by the guiding environmental
principles established by John Noble and Andy Lane at the
outset. The companies work together to ensure that only
the very best produce - farmed and fished to the highest
quality and environmental standards - reaches the kitchens
and plates of their customers.
