Snail Festival Program:
The International Snail Breeding Institute of Cherasco has organized formation and training days on snail breeding, for more than 40 years. During these events, we describe production methods, feeding problems, reproduction and fattening management, picking, cleansing and market, legal, fiscal and health issues.
Following the growing interest towards the snail-breeding subject, the Italian Snail Breeding Institute is continuing to pursue the creation of specific and multilingual publications, with the aim of offering a complete study on the subject, from which to gather all needed notions.
“Our Snail” is the subject of lot of attention and passion by the snail breeders: the image of the little animal, its natural habitat, its prestigious and delicious cuisine are often presented in the photographs and images that must also become clear and important documents to promote the breeding activity, gastronomic selection and market expansion.
For this the International Institute of Snail Breeding of Cherasco promotes and organizes the 1st International Photography Competition dedicated to snails entitled “The world of the snail Helix” (species, biology, breeding, production, cooking, curiosity). Italian and foreign authors can participate at the contest.
Thanks to resilience and expertise, it manages to create the outdoors breeding method that it has perfected over the years.
