Royal Belgian Osetra Caviar
What started in Belgium as fish feed production company in the 1980s, Royal Belgium Caviar has since evolved and is now considered one of Europe’s most acclaimed producers of beautiful caviars. They began in the late eighties with the breeding of sturgeon in support of the development of sturgeon feed. In the early nineties, biologist Dr. Willy Verdonck was engaged in the breeding of sturgeon caviar, which yielded the first results in 2002. Although initially very limited, the production did gradually increase, as did the number of cultivated species. Through years of intensive research, Dr. Verdonck managed to completely control the breeding cycle of some sturgeon species (and he is now considered an international authority on caviar production). From the fertilization of the egg up to the production of caviar, every step in the farm, is meticulously controlled and monitored – and only one person, Willy’s wife Mia, is actually entrusted with the final production of the caviar.
Royal Belgian Osetra Caviar is true “Osetra” caviar produced by the eggs of Russian sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), boasting medium sizes pearls are often tinted dark olive green to golden yellow. With their striking colors and pronounced and pleasingly “nuttiness” they are a heavenly experience for every connoisseur. Its slightly earthy flavor, malossol cure (lightly salted), combined with a pleasant mouth feel and texture makes Royal Belgian Osetra a top product to be instantly appreciated by every caviar aficionado.
