Snail Breeding Turns Profitable in Bulgaria

Snail Breeding Turns Profitable in Bulgaria

The price of healing ingredients from snails is 26 times higher than the one of rose oil, and has turned snail breeding in Bulgaria into a profitable business.

The information was reported Monday by Simona Mollova, Chief Consultant with the Bulgarian National Snail Breeding Cluster (NOK).

The value of these ingredients, which can be found in snail slime, is EUR 130 per gram while the maximum price ever reached for Bulgarian rose oil on global markets has been EUR 5 000 per kilogram.

Until now, the ingredients have been used in scar-healing lotions while snail meat has been recommended also for the healing of wounds and against measles.

Currently, a Sofia hospital, along with a German clinic, are conducting medical trials for the anti-bacterial, anti-cancer of urinary tract and kidneys, and immune system boast effects of snail slime.
