Production

Productivity and profitability

It is estimated that the global consumption of edible land snails currently exceeds 300,000 tons. Experts say that in the next 20 years, the annual global consumption will multiply by five, that is to say, 1,500,000 tons per year. 

Profitability is even more interesting yet. In an open hatchery 2-3 kilos of snails may be obtained per square meter, and in an intense closed hatchery with controlled temperatures this yield per square meter is even higher. The number of snails per square meter varies between 250 and 400 per square meter. 

If you have an area of 5,000 square meters, production is expected to be around 10,000-15,000 kilos and with an estimated price of between 5 to 8 Euros, turnover would be around 91,000€.
