Our remarkable Story
Our story began in 2015 when we founded The MY PLACE GROUP and subsequently our most successful brand, The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar. Armed with a mere R800 as start-up capital, resilience and dream, we began our journey as a team to build a company together that celebrates and empowers all who work in it. We empower our people, our oceans and nature and look for sustainable solutions to food sources purveying these remarkable jewels of the Capes Southern Ocean, live oysters & mussels.
Today The MY PLACE Group, holding company of The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar employs 35 crew strong and counting with an additional 65 crew indirectly supported via our farms. We’re on a mission to change the way people think about employment and work with crew by making them apart of the bigger company picture and privy to our joint goals and dreams as a team.
What We Offer
Trust! We are the only specialist company in Southern Africa with a key focus in purveying the highest grade of live oysters & mussels available to South Africans. Our sustainably farmed produce is hauled from the icy depths of our Saldanha Bay farms every Friday morning and delivered live and directly to your door, same day.
By choosing to consume these two jewels from the ocean, you’re making a conscious decision to assist mother nature in restoring her fish stocks and the sensitive eco systems and patterns which govern our existence. Mussels and oysters are amongst the most sustainable food sources in the world.

You may notice I refer to “we” quite often. During the early stages it was just me as a shareholder, but “we” refers to the collective of the team.
