The word Caviar comes from the Persian word KHAVIAR, which means "the egg carrier". More specifically, Caviar is the sturgeon's eggs. The sturgeon has been swimming in the cold waters of the Northern Hemisphere for more than 250 million years, living as a wild fish in the Caspian Sea, whose shores border Iran and Russia.

The production of wild sturgeon caviar has long been associated with Iran, as it produced three of the best Caviar species: Beluga, Osetra and Sevruga. Thanks to the traditional fishing methods and knowledge gained over the years and the expertise in the manual production of caviar, the wild Iranian Caviar achieved the status of the world's best caviar.

Overfishing of the sturgeon has meant that today it is one of the threatened and protected fish species. Fishing for sturgeon in the Caspian Sea was completely banned in 2008. To protect the sturgeon, producers started breeding sturgeon in their natural habitat.

Kaviari was one of the first companies to start using Caviar from farmed sturgeon.
