The ultimate in quality seafood since 1942

Zeeland’s Roem is part of the Roem Group, Europe’s largest seafood processor with premises in the Netherlands and Germany. Mussels, oysters and prawns play the leading roles.

Mussels

With Europe’s cleanest seawater all around us the Zeeland’s Roem factory takes the pick of the mussel crop, delivered fresh from the Oosterschelde to our quayside landing facility for processing from July to the following April. Elsewhere in Yerseke Zeeland’s Roem has a second factory used for the production of preserved foods and chilled fresh products including mussels and a wide range of mussel specialities, a perfect base for a main meal or a tasty snack.

Mussels

Fresh mussels

It’s the sourcing that sets our Zeeland’s Roem fresh mussels apart. Mussels bearing the Zeeland’s Roem label come exclusively from the pure, nutrient-rich waters of the Oosterschelde and the Waddenzee. Roem van Yerseke B.V. guarantee that the mussels we process meet the very highest quality standards.

Zeeland’s Roem fresh mussels are available in a range of package types and sizes. Just contact us for further information.

Mussels

Cooked mussel meat

Fresh-cooked mussel meat is a quality product presenting infinite culinary possibilities. Available both deep-frozen and chilled fresh, our fresh mussels are cooked under expert supervision.

Once the mussel meat is separated from the shell it is inspected and selected both mechanically and by eye, then packed in a protected atmosphere in trays of different sizes or deep-frozen in plastic bags or in bulk. Just contact us for further information.

Oysters

The oyster is a highly appreciated culinary classic, famous for its beautiful shelll, its gorgeous tender texture and its creamy, salty flavour. A gift of the sea for the true connoisseur. So if you haven’t yet made the acquaintance of Zeeland’s Roem oysters, now’s the time! With a wide choice of varieties in our range there’s an oyster for every occasion.

Oysters

Flat oyster

The flat oyster has a chic appearance and is cultivated with great care and attention. The process of raising these shellfish may take as long as five years. Flat oysters are sold by size: the smallest are graded as 2/0 and the largest are classified as 6/0 and even 6/0 de luxe. So the higher the number, the larger the oyster!

Zeeland’s Roem oysters are unbeatably fresh. Each individual oyster is hand-picked for quality by experienced workers before being carefully placed in a wooden basket or a leak-free plastic tray. Just contact us for further information.

Oysters

Creuses

Our creuse oysters, known as “Fines de Zélande”, have an unusual elongated form. Grown in the pure Zeeland waters of the Oosterschelde and Grevelingen, they are ready for harvest after two to three years. Just like wine, oysters take on flavour from the substrate they grow in, and the light, peaty soil of the Zeeland seabed gives these oysters a wonderful delicate flavour.

Zeeland’s Roem “Fines de Zélande” oysters are available all the year round and are supplied in three sizes. Just contact us for further information.

Oysters

Champagne oyster

Their modest size makes these superb oysters with their delicate creamy flavour ideal as an amuse-bouche or as a snack with drinks. Cultivation in optimal conditions gives the champagne oyster its beautiful, deep, bowl-like shell, well filled with pure white meat delivering the perfect bite.

This unique summer treat is not always available, helping to make it that little bit special. Just contact us for further information.

Prawns

Roem van Yerseke provides for many different types of prawns, from the Dutch coast to the Far East, from the warm Caribbean to the chilly Northern waters. Roem van Yerseke offers prawns using their Zeeland’s Roem brand. Outside the Benelux countries the prawns mostly carry the Lacor brand.

Prawns

Dutch shrimps

In the world of prawns it’s the Dutch shrimp that bears the crown. Also known as Grey Shrimp or North Sea Shrimp, these are relatively small pink coloured crustaceans.
Our Zeeland’s Roem Grey Shrimps are cooked on board the fishing vessel immediately after the catch. The quickest route takes them to our own peeling facility where experienced hands peel them in a tightly controlled hygienic environment.

They are then packed or deep frozen in the high-risk zone in our IFS certified factory. Just contact us for further information.

Prawns

Tropical prawns

Roem van Yerseke is highly selective when it comes to the purchase of tropical prawns. Quality is paramount at all times, and only the very best prawns are purchased for packaging at our factory in Yerseke. Our extensive range includes pink prawns, jumbo prawns, tiger prawns and shrimps. Our purchase specifications greatly exceed the European Gap standard, guaranteeing quality, and environmental and social sustainability. Many of the products carry ASC certification.

Our tropical prawns are supplied deep frozen or packaged in a protective atmosphere. Just contact us for further information.

Zeeland’s Roem supplies a unique range of convenience products, including the very special “ à la minute” range. Microwaveable meals that only take a few minutes to prepare but still have all the taste and texture of the fresh product. Have your fresh mussels or lobster on the diner table in a few minutes !

Lobster

Eating lobster is a culinary experience. Lobster is mostly eaten in a restaurant because most people are not equipped to prepare this delicacy at home. Zeeland’s Roem changes that with the introduction of the fresh prepared lobster in the “à la minute” range. Building on the success of our Mussels à la Minute we decided to expand the concept with this luxury product. The result is a beautiful fresh lobster that can be served cold or hot.

A real fresh taste sensation, ready to serve in minutes. A half lobster makes a great first course, or serve the whole lobster as a main course. Just contact us for further information.

Convenience

Clams

Superb clams in the shell, straight from the sea and ready for use. All the taste and quality of freshly cooked shellfish, but quick and easy! Heating the clams takes just a minute and a half in the microwave, so all the taste and texture of the fresh shellfish is retained, they stay firm but with a tender bite and the typical rich, salty, juicy taste.

The storage life of 21 days is significantly longer than that of the raw product. Just contact us for further information.

Convenience

Scampi Brochettes

Quality and convenience in one! Based on tropical prawns this flavoursome dish is ideal as a starter, a component in a main meal, a tapa or as a snack with drinks. You don’t need to fire up the barbeque to enjoy Zeeland’s Roem scampi brochettes, they are ready after just a few minutes in the microwave. The sleek skin packaging contains four brochettes, and this luxurious treat is available in two flavors.

The mouthfeel of these prawns is perfection. Just contact us for further information.

Various

Zeeland’s Roem can supply everything you need for a delicious and easily prepared seafood meal. The classic meal of mussels calls for a suitable pan, and Zeeland’s Roem has the very thing for you. Carefully selected mussel herbs make preparation even easier, and our other products like prawns, crayfish meat or breaded mussels are transformed in no time into a superb culinary display. Try our Chuka Wakame (Japanese seaweed salad) for a fine finishing touch.

Various

Chuka Wakame

Chuka Wakame is a most unusual fresh green salad, a Japanese recipe using blanched seaweed with a marinade of sesame oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce and a dash of red pepper. Originally an accompaniment for sushi and sashimi, it also goes wonderfully with raw oysters or prawns.

Sweet, salty and with a hint of spice. Just contact us for further information.

Various

Fruits de mer

Producing a wide range of shellfish as we do, it seems only logical to combine these into a delicious mix. We add cockles and squid to our mix of mussels and prawns to present a complete seafood cocktail. We source our ingredients with care, selecting for flavour as well as colour.

An exciting product to serve hot or cold. Just contact us for further information.

Various

Crayfish

Crayfish are increasingly popular, which is no surprise to us as they have so many uses, from snacks to main meals. Crayfish are healthy and tasty. Crayfish differ in taste and texture from prawns, but you can use them in similar ways. The striking colouration of the crayfish meat raises this ingredient to a whole new level.

These crustaceans are supplied ready for use. Ideal in cold dishes but also wonderful in soups or with pasta. Just contact us for further information.

Various

Breaded mussels

Breaded mussels can be used for many different occasions . These deep-frozen mussels are herby and crispy. The cooked mussels are battered, pre-baked and immediately individually frozen. The result is a superb crispy mussel, with the real mussel taste. This is a product that will always merit a place in the freezer.

A delicious party treat, a stunning starter and of course it makes a great main course with salad and chips. Just contact us for further information.

Various

Mussel pans & herbs

Zeeland’s Roem mussel pans are specially designed to cook mussels. It is important that mussels are heated up rapidly to keep the meat tender, that is why the bottom of our mussel pan is thin. Because the shells open during cooking, they need extra space. That accounts for the special shape of the pan lid, which also makes an ideal receptacle for the empty shells.

Zeeland’s Roem Mussel Herbs are the ideal way to add extra flavour! Just contact us for further information.

Innovation & foresight

The revitalisation of the seafood sector is very much a live issue today, and is urgently required. We therefore aim to keep our business, Roem van Yerseke, at the front of the field when it comes to novel cultivation methods, quality processes and optimal control of food safety. Our High Risk Department has recently undergone a thorough renovation and modernisation, creating additional capacity and precise climate control and allowing us to guarantee optimal processing and packaging of our “ready to eat” products.

The largest microwave in Europe

Products in the “à la minute” range from Zeeland’s Roem are innovatory and unique. Seafood including mussels, clams and lobsters are prepared in Europe’s biggest microwave oven. A special procedure ensures that these products retain all the taste, texture, quality and bite of the fresh product. Contact us for further information about our microwave meals.

Our own hatchery

Roem van Yerseke have been researching the breeding and cultivation of seafood on and offshore for many years now, resulting in the construction of our own unique hatchery for crustaceans and shellfish. Our investigations and laboratory experiments have provided us with a wealth of knowledge about the multi-facetted task of breeding shellfish and crustaceans, eventually resulting in a breakthrough in the cultivation of a number of species, notably our Champagne Oyster.
