An appetite for sustainability
MetadataShow full item record
A local firm based in Antique is poised to export Philippine slipper oysters to China within the first semester of the year. It will be a pioneering feat for Crystal Bay Oyster Co., and proof that striving to keep our seas clean is not only sustainable but makes for good business, too. “When we started in the Visayas about 16 years ago, the oysters were no good – they were too thin. We had initial difficulty persuading people to patronize our oysters,” said Colin Buckley in an interview with Manila Standard during an oyster-shucking event at New World Makati to promote the second year of the Sustainable Seafood Week Philippines.
