In December 2021, the European Commission updated (Commission Implementing Regulation 2002/34), which allows Georgia to export snails and frog legs to the European Union among other food products. This has taken place within the framework of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between Georgia and the EU.

In several European countries, snails are used in the food industry. There is significant demand for the product, and Georgia is considered an ideal location for production due to weather conditions. Currently, snails are being produced on an estimated 50 farms across Georgia.

Snail production is an attractive market due to the high demand, low input required and profitable returns. Georgian farmers can get started with as little as half a hectare of land and sell one kilogram of produce for more than GEL 10 on the European market.
