About Waterford Oysters

Meitheal Trá na Rinne grading facility

Meitheal Trá na Rinne is a company which was set-up to market and sell oysters for the oyster producers of Dungarvan Bay. We trade under the name of Waterford Oysters, and deal mostly in bulk exports of oysters to France.

We sell oysters for several producers in Dungarvan, some small some big. The smallest growers produce as little as 5-10 tonnes per annum while the biggest, Bia Mara (Déise) Teo. produces in excess of 300 tonnes.

We now have a state of the art factory where we grade and prepare the product for sale. This ensures a consistentcy of quality and grade of oysters and ensures that we  can meet our customers requirements.

We employ a full time crew of 14 people on a year round basis and we export from 400-600 tonnes per annum, depending on the available production.

Over the past few years we have expanded our markets and made a lot of new contacts, especially in France and Italy. We sell to Normandy, Brittany, Marennes, Arcachon and the Mediterranean, and occasionally to Holland and Germany.
