The pristine conditions of our environment and careful harvesting, packing, and transporting procedures guarantee that SOL AZUL oysters meet all the requirements of the Mexican Health Authorities and the U.S. Food &.Drug Administration.
Growing, harvesting, packing and handling are done under careful conditions that make sure our oysters the freshest and healthiest available anywhere.
Sol Azul organic oysters are cultured in remote, pristine waters monitored by the Mexican Program for Bivalve Mollusk Health, created by the Ministry of Health (COFEPRIS) and by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, ensuring that they meet the highest degree of safety and quality.
