Helix Italia

Our company is located in Sardinia and has a long experience of thirty years in the sector cooking snails. It is specialized in the production and sale of hand-gathered non-raised cooking snails. The snails have their own biological cycle out in the open air, with a completely natural intake without use of feed, with excellent results in terms of taste and full-bodiedness of the meat.

Helix Italia has as its primary objective the authenticity and naturalness of its meats. For this reason, we have chosen to respect the natural open-air cycle of snails, which allows us to achieve products of superior quality compared to farm-raised snails. The species of snails, especially appreciated for the quality of their meat, is the most widespread of the Mediterranean area, thanks to decidedly favorable climatic conditions.
The products are overseen and personally selected by the owner, who personally sees to the quality at the gathering areas. After selection, the goods travel at a controlled temperature and occasionally via air, so as to avoid to expiration.

At our facility, we further hand-select the products to then be sure that they are put in a fresh area and ventilated for the important cleansing stage. Subsequently, the product is prepared in accordance with a specific procedure and packaged in various formats, labeled in conformity with regulations so as to give the consumer all of the information necessary for knowing about its provenance. The product is then stocked in warehouses at controlled temperature and humidity so as to provide the snails with a suited environment for their natural survival. The snails are then transported to warehouses of clients all over Italy and abroad via vehicles equipped with temperature-controlled cells.

Helix Italia sells fresh cultivated Cardoncello mushrooms (Pleurotus Eryngii) and dried fava beans.
