STABLE QUALITY MANUFACTURE
We produce products of certified quality in accordance with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 22000:2018 standards.
All manufactured batches are inspected for compliance with safety requirements by state veterinary control authorities.
All stages of raw material processing, including the stage of re-purification, are performed completely by hand.
Our farm covers an area of more than 20 hectares, with 4 hectares of fields under production capacity, on which up to 300 tons of Helix Aspersa Muller snails are grown.
The snails grow on ecologically clean land without pesticides, nitrates, radionuclides, which is confirmed by a certificate of laboratory tests.
The water used for watering snails is fed from its own artesian well. The nursery facilities are equipped with additional water filtration.
The water undergoes natural aeration - enrichment with oxygen. With such aeration, heavy metals fall into the pool, and the water that is on the surface flows through the overflow into the second pool, from which the water is supplied to the field. We carry out water quality certification annually in accordance with the requirements of HACCP ISO - 22000:2019.
The watering system is a drip rain system. The system is automatic, where the parameters of the number of waterings per day and the time interval when watering is switched on are preprogrammed. That is, we enter the parameters into the system how many times and at what time the watering should be turned on and then everything works automatically.
All units, pressure pump, control cabinet, solenoid valves, injectors, etc. are foreign-made.
Feed for snails is prepared without preservatives, from components of leading European and American companies. All components of the feed are processed, which increases their digestibility by up to 90%.
The production system meets the international quality standards DSTU ISO 9001, HACCP ISO - 22000: 2005 and the international certificate of quality GMP +.
The result of using this food is high-quality, soft and delicious snail meat.
This is a high-tech facility where the supply of light, heat, humidity, recuperation and ventilation of air are automatically controlled.
All premises are built so that dirty and clean area do not intersect, which meets all the standards of the food safety management system DSTU ISO - 22000: 2019.
All working conditions such as modern locker rooms, a toilet, a shower and a recreation room are created for employees. In this nursery one can grow 500 kg of snail eggs per month. The nursery is also equipped with a room for egg collection and an incubator, where the eggs mature and the baby snails hatch.
Snail is food, so all our products are subject to sanitary and hygienic control, quality control and certification. Our product does not contain toxins, parasites, ingredients with the letter code E and preservatives and meets the requirements for the use of organic content and the absence of GMO components.

Thanks to first-class distribution and storage, our snails are as fresh as a few hours after harvest.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
Nowadays, more and more snails, consumed by humans, are raised on farms. This takes certain pressure off the wildlife.
However, only 3% of the consumed snails are farm snails. Much of the demand is still met by their collection in the wild, which upsets the ecological balance in the environment.
Our activity preserves the farming ecosystem: selecting the best varieties for breeding, taking care of organic feeding and free grazing of animals.
