About the company

Meitheal Trá na Rinne (Waterford Oysters) was founded in 1990 in the Irish speaking (Gaeltacht) area of An Rinn to market and sell the premium quality oysters produced by our growers in Dungarvan Bay.

Our factory at Móta is at the end of a small cul-de-sac, right by the sea. Here we grade oysters and when ready for sale we purify them in our state of the art purification facility before packing them for market. Firmly rooted in a rural Gaeltacht area we are an integral part of the community in which we live, providing valuable long term employment in the local area and adding significantly to the local economy.
