Whitstable's oysters are world famous and have been for centuries.

The Whitstable Oyster Fishery Company traces its roots back to 1793, when it was set up by an Act of Parliament, but oysters have been a part of Whitstable’s history for far longer.

The Romans loved Whitstable oysters and were sending them home in around 80AD. Just as popular now, oysters are a healthy, sustainable and environmentally-friendly product.

Only oysters grown by the Whitstable Oyster Fishery Company on Whitstable’s famous beds have PGI [Protected Geographical Indicator] status which ensures their provenance and quality.
