Andreas Gugumuck owns Vienna’s largest snail farm, exporting snails, snail-caviar and snail-liver all over the world. The gourmet snails are processed using old traditional cooking techniques and some are sold locally to Austrian gourmet restaurants.
Andreas Gugumuck works with missionary zeal on the conservation of the old Austrian snail tradition. His excitement for snail breeding started as a hobby to counterbalance his job in the IT sector. In the meantime the dedication to his snails became full-time and with his enthusiasm and inventiveness he puts the snail-scene upside-down. Besides the traditional snails cooked with soup vegetables, snail-caviar and snail-liver were added to his product range. Furthermore, Andreas organises an popular annual snail-festival, attended by many starred chefs and gourmets.
