Gourmet Escargot is a family run business Valeria and Andrew Hogg – Our business and passion is .. SNAILS !!

Valeria has dealt with the export of live snails from Bulgaria over the past few years.



In 2014 we moved to France, where we built our own farm in the beautiful Aude region.

Our farm is more specifically situated in the region of Abbaye de Fontfroide, and is called "LA COURBERAILE" in occitan, which means the first ripe grapes as the earth is the most productive and the sunshine is all year around.





We currently export to France, UK, Spain and Switzerland. Our customers are from small farms to big food producers.


We provide our customers with total transparency in a very decentralized and complex market. This is why we've based our export & Markteting operations in Sofia.


Andrew is the head of our gourmet industrial unit. He started first producing snail specialities in the region of Devon, England. Since 2014 we moved also the production unit to France.


His passion for food made him experiment with different varieties of the traditional garlic snails and we believe that the final product is one of the most delicious of all varieties tasted !


We are glad to offer free sample to any serious potential business partner.


NEWS: 2014 was a big year for us, as we moved our business structure to FRANCE!! We can offer like this cheaper transport and overall cheaper snail delivery price!!


The region of Aude is known for farming and the climat is allowing us to breed snails all year around. This assures us always fresh adult snails on stock.



We have added a  New .. ONLINE COOKING WORKSHOP section on our website, which should make it easier for end customers to prepare their own snails

We offer 3 courses each 20 minutes from collecting the snail to the ready cooked product in your plate. Please dont hesitate to ask for more detailed information. Scripts are included for you in the prize.


Many thanks!!


Valeria & Andrew
