Fresh Prins & Dingemanse cockles are collected by hand in the Wadden Sea. This is done at low tide by means of so-called hand rakes. Then the sand is rinsed from the cockles with fresh, purified Oosterschelde water, which means as little sand as possible remains in the shells. After rinsing the cockles are checked carefully to make sure only the best are packaged.
