Our Story


Blackbeards was born in sunny Whitianga with humble market beginnings but has grown into a supplier of smoked mussels to likes of New World supermarkets, cafes and restaurants and others who are based around New Zealand.

We are fortunate to be situated within one of the best mussel growing areas in NZ, and we are proud to supply this very sustainable seafood source to New Zealanders. Our product is made in a real wood fired smoker and we use local manuka so you get a real smoke flavour with no artificial smoke additives. We use real ingredients to bring out the delicious flavours of the mussels and we make all our own marinades. This all helps us bring you a very delicious, totally authentically flavoured artisan product.
