In today's competitive market place in the luxury gourmet foods and caviar space, we strive to serve and introduce the needs of the caviar & gourmet food enthusiast and curious at the highest level and quality. Dorasti has been in the caviar and seafood business for more than 40 years and source our products directly from a few select premium aqua-farmers who practice rigorous standards of aquaculture and sustainability. This is very important to us as we know our product selection and quality is in the top tier. Secondly, our family and a team of in-house professionals who have more than 100 years of experience use our propriety salting and processing methods to preserve and enhance our client experience at the highest level. That's why we pride ourselves in really knowing what excellent caviar or products should taste and feel like. We never compromise on quality, and that's why our clients choose us as their trusted source and know when they order from us, they're receiving premium products.
What makes Dorasti caviar different?
Firstly, we are farm-to-table. Our sturgeons are all bred sustainability in the most humane conditions and water quality. The sturgeon specie is one of the oldest species dating back thousands of years. There is even evidence that the sturgeon is one of the only species that dates back to the dinosaur age. Therefore it is paramount to do everything we can to do our part by practicing sustainable methods, in-fact our father was one of the pioneers who advocated for sustainability and helped start the first sturgeon farm in the 1980s when it was deemed as ridiculous by the pundits.
Secondly, at our company, we have a famous saying; "Not all sturgeon roe is created equally." This could not be more true. Just as humans come in all different body types, forms, and genetics, the sturgeon is no different.
Furthermore, genetics is just one of the many elements that determine the quality of excellent caviar; the environment and nutrition make up another big part of this. At Dorasti, we take pride in breeding the sturgeons in the cleanest waters by providing the highest quality feed. We refuse to take short cuts in the name of cost-savings for a lower quality and graded caviar and product. Learn more about us by subscribing to our mailing list and check out our Stories tab.

How can caviar stay fresh? (Unopened, Opened, Frozen)
Unopened: The shelf life of a vacuum-sealed caviar tin is approximately 4-6 weeks if kept in the coldest part of the fridge. The recommended storage temperature is between 37-42 degrees. You will be provided an expiration date on the bottom of your caviar tin. Please ensure to keep your caviar away from dairy products!
Opened: For the best experience and quality, caviar should be enjoyed in one sitting! However, if stored properly in the fridge and sealed, it can stay fresh for another 24 hours. However, we do not recommend this as caviar's taste, texture, and smell can change depending on the circumstances!
Freezing: Dorasti Caviar is premium-grade caviar! We do not recommend freezing premium-grade caviar ever! Frozen caviar can stay consumable for up to 6 months. However, the taste and texture will deteriorate substantially!
