Like a perfect grape or cherry tomato, the plump meat fills your mouth with pleasure and the
deliciously invigorating taste of the ocean. The Kusshi’s exquisite flavour starts salty,
transitions to sweet, and finishes with a delightfully mild fruity taste.
In naming our Kusshi™ oyster, we wanted to pay homage to the Japanese origins of the Pacific
oyster or Crassostrea Gigas which originated in Japan and was brought to North America in
the early 1900’s, while expressing the unique nature of our product – the ‘ultimate’ oyster.
“Kusshi no hito” – in Japan in 1893, a Soshi (master, or head teacher) was recorded using this
term. He was describing a man of uncommon ability. Today, the term is still used in the
Japanese language to describe something considered to be world-class, outstanding,
preeminent or ‘the best.’
