The Company, formed in 2004 from the merger of the world’s largest importer of Caspian Caviar, Caviar House (1950) and the traditional company Prunier (1872), is the only caviar merchant who produces his own caviar. When Laurent Sabeau, Managing Director of Prunier Manufacture started cultivating sturgeons in 1990, people found that quite strange. One assumed as a rule, caviar could only come from the Caspian Sea, Russia or Iran. You would probably not think of Montpon-Ménestérol, a small town in south-western France with 10,000 inhabitants. On several acres of untouched nature on the banks of the Gironde near Bordeaux, the Prunier manufactory, headed by Laurent Sabeau, is cultivating high-quality sturgeon.
