Bristol Enters 25th Year, Celebrates with Wild Maine Mussels

PORTLAND, Maine, Feb. 1 — Bristol Seafood, a leading provider of responsibly-sourced, responsibly-produced, quality-assured seafood, will celebrate the launch of its newest offering, Wild Maine Mussels, at a special event on February 4 at O’Maine Studios in Portland. The event will also commemorate the company’s 25th year in business.

Guests including Bristol Seafood employees, elected officials, suppliers and more will be treated to Bristol mussels freshly prepared by world-renowned chefs.

Bristol mussels are caught off the shores of Acadia National Park by local fishermen, cleaned and packed on the fish pier in Portland, and delivered fresh to restaurants and grocery stores. Wild Maine Mussels are currently available at the seafood counter of any Hannaford grocery story and are available to restaurants in the Maine area through PFG – Northcenter.

“For 25 years, Bristol Seafood has built a reputation on uncompromising standards. This has meant that we’ve scaled responsibly, and never too fast,” said Darrell Party, CEO of Bristol Seafood. “By adding Wild Maine Mussels to our menu of seafood offerings, we envision bringing one of the most popular restaurant dishes to kitchens and dinner parties everywhere – at a level of quality we feel proud to put the Bristol name on.”

Health Benefits of Bristol’s Wild Maine Mussels

  • Mussels Build Muscles: 1 cup of mussels contains 18 grams of protein. Or to look at it a different way, 15 mussels provide the same amount of protein as a 6oz. steak.
  • Mussels Boost Moods: mussels boost vitamin absorption significantly, especially B-12, which aids in mood regulation and boosts energy.
  • Mussels Promote Heart Health: Mussels have more heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids than any other shellfish and far more than any other meat popular today.
