Useful information for buying caviar - and enjoying caviar


In the United Kingdom, consumers have the option of purchasing caviar online and on the high street.

Generally, online caviar prices are more attractive than those from high street shops and well-known department stores. Without costly overheads, online caviar retailers are able to offer prices that are attractive and a quality that has gained a strong reputation over the past few years.

Most caviar retailers sell both wild caviar and farmed caviar. Responsible caviar retailers are fully aware of the need to source wild caviar responsibly, in a manner that does not jeopardise the long-term well being of the wild sturgeon fish (the fish that provide caviar eggs).

For those who wish to explore farmed caviar, they should take comfort in knowing that farmed caviar's quality and reputation has increased over the years and is now very well regarded by many connoisseurs.

One farmed caviar that is gaining strong market share is Calvisius Caviar, produced in northern Italy.

To buy Wild Caviar or Farmed Caviar, we recommend you do an online search for they type of caviar that interests you (e.g. farmed caviar). You may also find it useful to search for caviar-related products (e.g. mother of pearl spoons).
