Our story

In 1998 based on oyster exposure in France & Japan, Moonlight Co began farm- direct supply to restaurants, shipping only live closed oysters under traceable brands. This circumvented the pre-shuck tap-rinse travesty and, at the same time minimised real-time delay risk endemic in the traditional mid - chain market structure.

Traceable brands, notably our Claire de Lune (R) 1999, soon built an enduring reputation for quality still valid in 2024. Our brands opened up a whole new luxury sector based on provenance, a much imitated concept in recent times.

Our production remains capped by the need to achieve internal Quality Assurance standards, a goal simply unattainable had we set out to chase big bulk scale platforms. Oysters just ain't hamburgers.

It’s simple. All about the finish. Our aim is year round consistency.

Storage & logistics

We don’t store oysters, - they’re either on their way to bistros or they’re headed back to the water. We don’t pre shuck, nor, god forbid, freeze. So our cooling is 100% natural, 100% sustainable. Based on evaporative cooling, the shed has a 7 metre high pitch ridge with lower breezeway doors to maximise breeze currents, passing over wet concrete floor. Damp hessian covers draw heat from crated oysters, magically chilling down stock. Low volatility in storage temperatures is best with minimal sets of hands between farm and kitchen.

Awards & Features


''The oysters and the packaging were perfect. We have had nothing but great feedback on the oysters, We sold one of the extra boxes in store and the staff enjoyed some that were left over and they were DELICIOUS.

As always we really appreciate the care and preparation for keeping the oysters at their utmost best and the lengths you go to.

The Picpoul sold well during December and does during the summer.''

JP St Kilda
''Picpoul has arrived and works a treat with the brand new kingfish dish. It’s going on as a wine match and people have responded well to it. We will probably go through a case a fortnight happy to buy 2 at a time. You will have to come in and try the wine with the dish sometime''
MW. Hunter Valley NSW
