The ideal temperature for storing caviar is 28° – 34° to preserve optimal quality. This is best achieved by keeping it on frozen ice packs in your refrigerator. If continually keeping it on ice isn't practical, store your caviar in the coldest part of your refrigerator (typically the back bottom). Unopened, caviar will last 5 weeks. Once opened, enjoy your caviar within 5 days.
You should remove your caviar from the refrigerator no more than 5 minutes before serving to ensure freshness and the desired pop.
In the unlikely event you will not finish your caviar in one sitting and need to store it, we recommend gently placing a layer of plastic wrap on the surface of the caviar before applying lid. This will minimize the caviar’s contact with air, slowing down its oxidation process which will increase its shelf life. Although sturgeon caviar is best not frozen, whitefish, salmon and trout caviar's freeze nicely.
All of our items are guaranteed fresh. Should you be unhappy with your order, please call us at 415.332.0822 for a return authorization number within 24 hours of receipt of the package.
If returns are approved, all perishable products must be shipped properly packed on FROZEN gel ice in an insulated shipping box and returned FedEx® Priority Overnight.
We will make arrangements to pick up the package for return to us. The product must be received at or below 39 degrees by FDA regulations in order to receive a full refund less shipping and handling charges.
