The caviar comes from the eggs of the ascipenser sturgeon. This ancestral fish lives mainly in the wild in the waters of the Caspian Sea, which bathes the shores of Iran and Russia.
It is in Iran that the manufacture of wild caviar has long been most famous. Three of the best varieties of caviar were produced there: beluga caviar, oscietra caviar and sevruga.Thanks to a traditional sea fishing method and the centuries-old know-how of craftsmen, Iranian wild caviar was recognized as the best in the world.
Over the years, the endangered sturgeon has become a protected species. In 2008, its fishing in the Caspian Sea was banned. Caviar producers then turned to rearing sturgeons in a natural environment on fish farms, thus preserving the wild natural resource.
Kaviari was one of the first houses to adopt this eco-responsible approach while developing its know-how acquired from Iranian masters, which we have supported with "our" partner breeders in order to pass on this ancestral and unique know-how!
