The product


The Helix breeding takes place outdoors within a genuine vegetation, which has not been treated with any insecticide. Insects are controlled and regulated through biological traps involving pheromones and periodic treatments with bacteria such as Bacillus. The collection proceeds by hand: the snails are collected and put into perforated sacks. These are then placed on a metallic mesh net and turned several times during the day. The process is naturally performed in a designated area with a roofing to protect from sunlight. After a couple of days, the snails are moved to the warehousing zone with a controlled temperature from 4°C to 8°C. They will be staying there until the selling, after being controlled and calibrated. We offer packages of 500 g for large retailers and a large size of 5 kg for markets. Undoubtedly, our plant fully satisfies sanitary and hygienic standards and holds the production chain permits.



The supermarket packaging consist of plastic bowls in which the snails are placed. The chipboard at the bottom absorb humidity. This 500 g sale format corresponds to two portions.
