Caviar Star is the main brand for Great Atlantic Trading Inc., importer-exporter of caviar and culinary specialties. Since the start of our company on the wharves of Portland, Maine in 1991, we have reliably supplied distributors, wholesalers, chefs, and retail customers with the finest selection of caviar, truffles, escargots, oils, vinegars, and other specialties at wholesale prices.
Ever since the incorporation of the Caviar Star and Great Atlantic Trading Inc., we have offered online shoppers great rates on the highest quality foods sourced from small artisan producers around the world. We bring these fine products into the U.S. in large volumes for chefs through distribution, which allows our online customers to take advantage of great deals without compromising quality. Being direct importers ensures we have large amounts of premier caviar on hand at all times, allowing us to share Michelin Star-quality caviar with online US customers at unbeatable prices.

Our Commitment to Caviar: Although quality caviar is always an expensive product, we strive to make it affordable. Our commitment to bringing customers only the finest caviar at the lowest prices is achievable thanks to our high-volume facility and expertly trained staff. We distribute only the freshest product, domestic and imported, personally inspecting each and every container we receive in accordance with all government regulations and food safety protocols.
Our Trust in Sustainability: Caviar Star's #1 policy is to meet today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This is why we offer environmentally conscious and sustainable products and have put many green practices into the operation of our facility. Our partnerships with eco-friendly farms and fisheries are also closely monitored to make sure we source products without harming the natural world. We ask our producers to use green practices and more sustainable packaging in finalizing their products. We supplement styrofoam for perishable shipping with better cotton insulation or biodegradable, compostable plant-based foam. Learn more about our sustainable practices and policy here.
