In November 1997, Planet Caviar aspired to share its passion for caviar and its expertise in researching and developing quality products. In becoming, since its beginnings, an importer of the best caviar from Russia and Azerbaijan and authorised to market Iranian caviar,Planet Caviar has established itself as an expert in these prestigious delicacies. Thanks to the experience it has acquired over the years,Planet Caviar has produced its own caviar: imported, aged, selected and packaged to order in its laboratory in Geneva, the result of traditional craftsmanship.
