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.
