Bottarga Production Process

  • The roe pouches are carefully selected and lightly seasoned with Aitolikon fresh sea salt, a stage that adds to the distinct taste of this savoury delicacy.

  • Then, the roe pouches are gently rubbed to eliminate any presence of air. This process lasts several weeks and demands facilities with controlled temperature and humidity.

  • After drying, part of the roe is naturally smoked, with a precise combination of wood types.

  • Finally, in order to preserve the natural moisture of the product and to protect it from external conditions, each twin roe, plain or smoked, is dipped into melted a 100% natural beeswax.

  • The finished product, that will reach the hands of the consumer, is packaged in specific conditions with highly selective material. This final touch, acts as a tangible proof of the company’s care and respect to the product.

  • The final product is carefully stored in chilled conditions in the company’s adequately structured fridges. Transportation is taken care of by the company’s privately own fleet of fridges to guarantee a 100% freshness, while it takes its way to the delicatessen stores and into your kitchens.
