Royal Belgian Caviar Visit – King’s Fine Food and a group of guests, visit Royal Belgian Caviar for an insight into their traditionally produced caviar, which is exclusively distributed by King’s in the UK.
100% Belgian, 100% natural
Royal Belgian Caviar is the pioneer of ‘the black gold’. In 2002 they were the first and only Belgian producer of caviar on the market.
The launch of their 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 they 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.
THE art OF CAVIAR
To achieve the typical, exclusive taste of caviar the breeding process and preparation must go flawless. This requires quite some skill and expertise.
The feeding and breeding circumstances of the sturgeons are also decisive for the taste. Based on years of experience, Royal Belgian has developed its own sturgeon feed.
At the farm, they constantly monitor and check the water quality. 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
To guarantee the exclusive quality, the entire breeding process takes place under controlled circumstances. Royal Belgian control all the steps in the process themselves. The same applies to the mixture and production of fish feed.
They follow each step of the production process carefully, from fertilization of the eggs to the actual harvest of caviar. They screen and select the individual sturgeons based on the size, firmness and taste of the eggs.
What is good, needs not to be reinvented. That is why Royal Belgian swear by the traditional age-old preparation method. By using only non-ovulated eggs, they meet the high expectations of their loyal caviar lovers. With an ultrasound, we 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, their caviar is vacuum-packed and sealed. The perfect storage conditions (for caviar) are generated in the refrigerator. After the last quality control, the Royal Belgian Caviar is ready to be tasted by caviar lovers around the world.
CITES – or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species – prohibits capturing sturgeons in the Caspian Sea. That is why the sale of wild-capture caviar is prohibited by law.
Royal Belgian Caviar offers a 100% sustainable alternative. The eggs come exclusively from sturgeons we breed. Because we control the entire breeding cycle, we no longer must take sturgeons out of their natural habitat for the production of caviar.
