A long tradition of quality

 

Riec-sur-Bélon, Oléron… well-known names that are synonymous with our know-how and the quality of our seafood products, and particularly our oysters. All kinds of mussels, blue lobster from the coastal waters of Brittany, famous for its taste and for the delicacy of its meat, Royal or Brittany rock lobster caught in pots or nets, ocean-flavored shellfish: we can provide our full range of sea produce all year round, on a regular basis, in optimum cultivation and fishing conditions. We are particularly mindful of environmental protection and demanding when it comes to water quality. Établissements Thaëron continue to strive for perfection while exploring the innovative approaches exemplified by the Brit Inov business cluster.

 

Our history

Founded on the banks of the Bélon river, Éts THAËRON, a family business dating back to 1879, has handed down its oyster-farming know-how from generation to generation, while diversifying into a whole range of other sea produce.

They use the celebrated waters of the Bélon, to mature their oysters, mussels, cockles, etc., and to keep lobsters, crabs and other crustaceans in the best possible conditions in their specially designed storage tanks.

 

A tradition of quality

Our priority: a tradition of quality.In order to comply with all the different food safety requirements, we have implemented quality assurance processes in all our business premises (Riec-sur-Bélon, Lorient, Étaules).

Our products are thoroughly selected and controlled by an independent laboratory and by the French Veterinary Services, which allows us to prevent and eliminate any food safety hazards.
