Private Selection

Since 2007 the wild caviar became forbidden in Europe only captive breeding caviar was allowed and represented 90% of the worlds production. It’s techniques require the know-how of the great “Masters” or “Maitre”. In captive breeding it’s required to wait 3 to 5 years for the sex of the sturgeon. Only after 8 years, at least, will it be possible to make a biopsy to evaluate the maturity of the eggs, colour and size. The Soviet Union, after the Russian Tsars, was for a long time the only producer of caviar but after 1953, Staline gave to Iran the right to explore the Iran shores of the Caspian Sea. Today the number of countries that explore the shores of the Caspian Sea are 5 (Iran, Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kirghizistan). As for the caviar produced in Canada, America, Romania, Girondin, they cannot be compared to the Caspian due to the particularity of the closed waters and the lack of ocean currents. Only exception of a Uruguayan farm who is developing a sturgeon feeding program very strict equivalent to the feeding sturgeons have in natural environment. The development of this program resulted in obtaining a new Label “Semi-Wild Caviar” Certification court by the FDA in the USA. Private Selection works in direct collaboration, with a very controlled and precise attention to details concerning the production, in order to obtain exceptional quality from the producer until the delivery.
