Its National Oyster day and here in Manchester The Black Pearl Oyster Company are gearing up for a big day tasting oysters and drinking champagne! All across the world today people are shucking oysters and raising a glass to a luxury food that has nourished humans for millennia. Nearly two billion pounds of oysters are consumed every year across the globe and for good reason.

Oysters are a low fat, high protein seafood choice with an above average amount of healthy minerals such as selenium, zinc, iron, magnesium and B vitamins. So when you’re tucking into your oysters today, whether it’s at an event, wedding or just in your own home make sure you savour the history, luxury and health benefits because here at the The Black Pearl Oyster Company we sure will!

Happy Oyster day!!
