Queensland Oyster Company is a family-owned and operated business based in the Moreton Bay region. Established in 2013, father-son duo Tim and Andrew use innovative growing methods to farm their oysters all the way from spat through to maturity.
Tim and Andrew have acquired multiple leases across various estuaries, each exhibiting different tidal flows, nutrients and seafloor compositions. As a result of these varying conditions, the oysters in each area develop their own unique flavour profile.
Queensland Oyster Company is involved with multiple festivals and events, including Noosa Food and Wine Festival, Noosa Oyster INdulgence, Lexus Melbourne Cup Day and Caxton Street Seafood and Wine Festival. They supply directly to Blackbird Bar & Grill (Brisbane) and Cafe Le Monde (Noosa), as well as several wholesalers across Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Tim and Andrew hope to promote the profile of Moreton Bay as a major oyster-growing area.
