CITES Certificates

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora is an international agreement among governments involved in the international trade ofwild animals and plants, which is intended to protect the interests of threatened species. All authentic sturgeon caviar products are required to have the CITES code on the label of each tin.

On the back of all authentic caviar tins there are a series of letters and numbers that inform consumers about the product they are purchasing. See below an explanation on how to read this label, so that you are aware of what you are buying or eating, when and where it was processed, and who produced it.

At Sturios Caviar we acquire 1.8 kg of caviar maturing tins and repackage them in smaller formats in order to offer the highest quality and freshness of caviar.
