Snail caviar is a luxury food item that has seen growing interest across Europe. The American Farm School (AFS) in Thessaloniki, Greece has begun trials to produce a snail caviar product to introduce to the Greek market. There are limited resources available regarding information on snail caviar production, and the AFS is trying to establish a protocol for this practice that can be used by future snail caviar farmers. Our team worked with the AFS to develop a preliminary design for their new snail farm and to gauge the market for snail caviar in the Thessaloniki region through interviews. We recommended a design snail farmers could adopt for snail caviar to supplement their current snail meat production. We also made recommendations on how to introduce snail caviar to the market in Greece.
