France Haliotis is the first sea-based ormer farm in France and the largest in Europe. Wild ormers are becoming scarce and difficult to access as most of them are exported to Asia. Our ormers are specially produced for European gastronomy restaurants in order to maintain this rare and exquisite species among our cooking and eating traditions.
Our ormers are farmed at sea and fed 100% fresh seaweed hand-picked locally respecting the seasonality and the fragile balance of marine habitats. You are also welcome at anytime in Plouguerneau to visit our farm. (www.francehaliotis.com)
*Cocktail size ormers: 6-7 cm, approx 35g/unit it is naturally tender and available all year round – 30 units/kg. Also named the "truffle of the sea" by local Brittany chefs and gastronomy reviewers, it provides a great potential for creative and innovative cooking opportunities. The 4 years required to grow them to this size give their flesh all the time to concentrate the unique flavour that they take from the seaweed they eat.
