Caviar farms exist through the world, and now the newest one has found it's home in Abu Dhabi, The UAE.
The Royal Caviar Company, launched under the Bin Salem Holdings, is the Middle East's first caviar farm. The factory currently contains 18 tons of sturgeon (mainly Siberian) with an additional 124 tons (various sturgeon) expected for delivery later this year. Additionally, approximately 20 ever-so-rare albino sturgeons are also expected for delivery.
The farm plans to be at full production in 2015, with a capacity to produce 35 tons of caviar along with 700 tons of sturgeon meat per year. We are definitely looking forward to sampling some of their product, hopefully by the second half of 2012. Just like most any other industry, more competition will result in higher quality and lower prices. This is great for both purveyors such as Caviar Express, and for our customers.
