Quality Assurance

High quality snails, snail aliments, breeding procedures.

Aliment

In breeding snails at onefoot we have opted for the exclusive use of Hélinove aliment, produced by Antigny Nutrition, imported from France. The exceptional quality and suitability of this food supplement ensures that the snails will grow sufficiently within the 150 day period, without missing any of the vital nutrients they would get from their natural environment.

The snail aliment Hélinove Unique has a corn and flour base and contains all the nutrients necessary for the snail to grow a hard shell and top quality flesh. Only natural ingredients, vitamins and minerals are used and it is free from animal fats and artificial additives. The feed is produced by Antigny Nutrition on receipt of our order and has a shelf life of 6 months. It contains an antibacterial agent, which ensures the feed is properly preserved and limits any potential danger to the snails’ health.

If you are interested in purchasing this special aliment or simply need to place another order then please contact us. For more information about Antigny Nutrition please click here

Procedures and Control

Veterinary Control

One of the most important parameters in ensuring the quality of our product is frequent inspection of samples by a vet from the relevant authority of the Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food.

ISO 9000 & 22000

The procedures performed at each stage strictly adhere to the standards set out by the International Organization for Standardization. Onefoot will duly acquire the necessary certification.

Soil and Water

Soil Quality

The quality of the soil at both of our snail farms has been analyzed by a specialist and has been deemed suitable for snail breeding.
The soil at both breeding units is free from fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides and other chemical products.

Water Quality

The water used at our snail farms is certified as being suitable for agricultural use.
