Whole pink salmon goes to the plant and is kept in cold water tanks prior to processing. Salmon eggs is removed from the fish, washed, salted.

After that, it is packed and frozen in high-power freezers at a temperature of -40°C. Instant freezing allows to preserve all the useful qualities of caviar.
