Owners, Chris & Trish Redwood have been involved in the mussel farming industry for over 40 years. Having grown up on Forsyth Island on the outer of the Marlborough Sounds, Chris (and his father Pembroke Henry Redwood) saw the potential for mussel farming around the island, in the late 1970s. To this day this is where most of the Redwood farms are still located. The isolation and strong abundant currents making for superb growing conditions.
In 2003, joined by Trish’s siblings Jo and Sandy O’Connell, P.H.R Processing Ltd (a homage to Chris’ father), was formed. The following year they launched the 500g Omega Seafood Cooked Gourmet Greenshell Mussels. The outstanding flavour, texture and shelf life were rewarded by winning the highly prestigious “European Seafood Exposition Prix d’Elite for Foodservice (and the convenience category)” in 2005.
