When talking about Belgium's finest export products, Royal Belgian Caviar stands on top of the list. While we discuss the combination between Wagyu and caviar in another article, we zoom in on the 'black gold': Royal Belgian Caviar. Let's get started!
100% Belgian, 100% natural
Royal Belgian Caviar is the pioneer of ‘the black gold’ in our country. In 2002 it was the first and only Belgian producer of caviar on the market.
The launch of this top product was preceded by ten years of intensive preparations. In this period they built their own breeding stock of different sturgeon varieties. All sturgeons that ourd use for their caviar come from their own farm and are fed with mixed food from their own production.
Royal Belgian Caviar soon became a worldwide quality reference among caviar lovers. Top chefs appreciate the quality and class of our Belgian caviar. Royal Belgian Caviar turns every moment – the whole year through – into an exclusive indulgence for your taste buds.
THE ART OF CAVIAR
In order to achieve the typical, exclusive taste of caviar the breeding process and preparation have to go flawless. This requires quite some skill and expertise.
The feeding and breeding circumstances of the sturgeons are also decisive for the taste. On the basis of years of experience they developed their own sturgeon feed.
At the farm, sturgeons are constantly monitored and water quality is checked the whole day through. Thanks to the perfect breeding and feeding circumstances Royal Belgian Caviar exceeds the taste and quality of the traditional wild capture.
FROM FERTILIZED EGG TO THE ACTUAL HARVEST
In order to guarantee exclusive quality the entire breeding process takes place under controlled circumstances. Royal Belgian Caviar controls all the steps in the process themselves. The same applies for the mixture and production of fish feed.
Each step of the production process is followed carefully, from fertilization of the eggs to the actual harvest of caviar. Individual sturgeons are screened on the basis of size, firmness and taste of the eggs.
TRADITIONAL PREPARATION, QUALITY GUARANTEE
What is good needs not be reinvented. That is why Royal Belgian Caviar swears by the traditional age-old preparation method. By using only non-ovulated eggs, they meet the high expectations of our loyal caviar lovers. With an ultrasound they check each sturgeon for the exact quality of the eggs. Only sturgeons with the perfect egg quality are used.
They have an especially designed production area where our team sieves, rinses and measures the eggs with the utmost care. They never mix eggs of different fish in one batch. Then our caviar master is responsible for adding a little salt - ‘malossol’ - to the eggs. They ensure the perfect balance between the different aromas.
Finally, Royal Belgian Caviar is vacuum-packed and sealed. The perfect storage conditions (for caviar) are generated in the refrigerator. After a last quality control the Royal Belgian Caviar (our caviar) is ready to be tasted by caviar lovers around the world. Check out our caviar products here!
