The well-known Dutch flat oyster is back, with its characteristic round, flat shape. In the 1950s and early 1960s, this oyster was flown to true enthusiasts and connoisseurs around the world. However, during the harsh winter of 1963 almost all flat oysters were frozen to death and disappeared. After many setbacks and years of scarcity, this oyster has now recovered and the population is growing. Breeding Dutch Imperial oysters requires a lot of attention and care from the farmer; it is only suitable for consumption after 3 to 6 years. The Dutch Imperial brand is a selection of the best flat oysters from our breeding grounds in Dutch waters.
The Dutch imperial is known for its exceptional quality, selection and exclusivity.
