Operations & Responsibility

From the outset Belpearl Myanmar has sought to raise the standard of pearl farming, by actively balancing the needs of the environment with the needs of the community.

Hatchery

Relying on our own oyster stock, Belpearl Myanmar maintains a professional oyster hatchery, growing the Pinctada Maxima species of oyster. In this way the farm can depend on a reliable stock of oysters without endangering wild oysters stocks.

Farming

For the highest quality pearl harvests, pearl oysters need to be continually monitored throughout the 5 year process required to produce a single pearl. Pearl farming involves the constant diligence and forecasting to make sure all farm processes are optimized.

Pearling Technicians

Belpearl Myanmars Pearling technicians expertly conduct seeding grafts to produce pearls as well as harvest operations to retrieve pearls. Requiring delicate hands and focused concentration, oyster technicians ensure that oysters produce the best pearls possible.

CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCTION

Community & Safety

Belpearl Myanmar takes an active role as a member of Myanmar's southern Mergui archipelago, committing a portion of its annual revenue directly towards a variety of community efforts including supporting local education programmes, disease prevention efforts and disaster relief and assistance. Furthermore, since pearl farms constantly require a team of divers to maintain oysters underwater for long period of time, Belpearl Myanmar sponsored the education and certification of the internationally recognized P.A.D.I diving standards.
