According to Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Global market size annually is USD12Billion, with USD1.2Billion coming from breeders and Tripplea Foods targeting USD180Million of the market.
France, Spain and Portugal are amongst the biggest European consumers of Helix Aspersa snails. Global consumption is 400.000 – 450.000 tons per year, of which only 15% comes from snail breeding units, while the remaining 85% comes from snails collected from nature.
The European market is in deficit at 60.000-80.000 tons per year.
Far East, notably Japan, USA and developing Arab states are increasingly turning to this product because it is a characteristic of the Mediterranean cuisine - diet and because it is consistent with the dietary fashion.
