The Littleneck Clam
New Zealand littleneck clams, more traditionally known as the New Zealand cockle, tuaki or tuangi, have been exported to a dozen countries for over twenty years. These carefully managed wild stocks are harvested in the brilliantly clear unpolluted waters of our Southern Pacific Ocean, on the Otago coast. All harvesting, processing and packaging operations comply with the New Zealand government, USFDA and EU standards.
