Muckairn Mussels - A Growing Business
Muckairn Mussels was established in 1985, by Walter Speirs and Janice McGhee growing mussels in Loch Etive in Argyll, an area of outstanding natural beauty, renowned for the quality of mussels produced in its clear, sheltered waters.
The Company has continued to increase production over the last 21 years, and now produces over 200 tons of mussels per year, mainly for the wholesale market, selling through the Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group, situated in Bellshill, Lanarkshire. The SSMG Ltd is a co-operative set up by shellfish farmers. Walter was a founding member of the SSMG and was chairman for 14 years.
