What's the best way to package and ship caviar?

Caviar is a perishable, temperature sensitive product that commonly ships in breakable glass or dentable metal containers. So how can you be sure the caviar you order won't arrive damaged, contaminated and/or too warm to safely eat? Well, with carriers like UPS and FedEx occasionally misplacing packages and dropping boxes, it is up to the shipper (that's us!) to package the product properly and reduce the chance that the cargo gets destroyed during its journey to the customer.

To ensure perishable caviar survives its transit, Caviar Star packs it in sturdy containers and vacuum seals it. Pretty common, pretty effective, vacuum sealing and banding a quality container, then surrounding it in bubble wrap is the best way to ship caviar and safeguard product from potential damage during transit.

All of our perishable products will ship for next-day delivery, but in rare circumstances of a missed delivery you might ask, how long does the packaging keep the caviar cool? 

All of the caviar we ship is packed in insulated boxes with gel ice to keep the product under temperature for up to 48 hours. After much on-site testing and lab analysis, we guarantee our shipments to be cool and safe within a two-day transit window.
