✓ DanShells was founded in 1936, and is Denmark’s only producer of whole and crushed mussel shells.


Part of the ecosystem

Mussels live in their shells in deep water. When they die, the empty shells are washed into shallower areas and accumulate on banks, where there is a strong current – fjord mouths for example. They accumulate here to depths of between 15 and 30 cm, depending on the tide. This cycle is part of the ecosystem.


Mussel shells are a clean, organic raw material with no form of additives. They can be used for the production of conventional and organic poultry and bird food.

DanShells products are guaranteed salmonella-free, as they are processed without being handled and are heated to 800 degrees C.

They originate primarily from the North Sea and North Atlantic, plus from Danish producers of mussels for food. They are the highest quality mussel shells, with calcium content of between 37 and 39 percent.
