Fresh snails available all year round for the catering trade.

We have been supplying fresh snails for escargot dishes to hotels, restaurants and gastro pubs since 2006 and are rapidly expanding our customer base.

Our orders are sent via an overnight carrier which enables us to deliver in the UK.

The secret of our success is strongly attributed to the fact we sell only fresh snail products, never frozen. The snails are blanched and or cooked to order and despatched the same day.

Apart from our core product being blanched snails, we now offer for convenience fresh cooked snails that have been vacuum packed with butter, garlic and parsley and then cooked in a water bath for two hours @ 96 degrees - this method produces escargot of excellent quality.

We have now opened a dedicated processing unit near Poole in Dorset enabling us to handle large volumes of snails each week.

Blanched or Cooked Snails

Blanched Snails

Vacuum pack quantity - 120

Prior to blanching, our snails are purged then put into a state of hibernation. Once blanched, they are de-shelled, vacuum packed and despatched the same day via overnight carrier. All of our blanched snails require simmering for 2 hours to cook and tenderise the meat.

Cooked Snails

Vacuum pack quantity - 120

We now offer cooked snails that after being blanched are vacuum packed with butter, garlic and herbs and cooked gently in a water bath for two hours at 96 degrees C. This method of cooking produces exceptional escargot that are tender and very tasty. We pack them in 120's and they only require reheating to serve. Cooked snails also freeze very well.
