Our Story

In 1991, we started Paramount Caviar in pursuit of providing the highest quality caviar to the most discerning palates. Over the years, our caviar has been experienced in the country's most high-end restaurants and hotels, and now in the comfort of your home. No matter where you are or what the occasion is, caviar should be a celebrated experience. We are honored to serve you and to be a part of your memories.

Caspian Heritage

Our story begins with our founder's, Hossein Aimani's, upringing in Iran's Caspian Sea region. It was on the shores of the Caspian Sea that Hossein saw sturgeons be caught and caviar be harvested to be sold in local markets. Growing up, Hossein fondly remembers many family celebrations with Iranian caviar being served on freshly toasted bread and traditional Iranian tea.

Two Paths to Luxury

In the '80s, Hossein built his caviar expertise by selling to New York's elite restaurants, including Le Bernardin and The Waldorf Astoria. Meanwhile, Amy Arrow-Aimani was leading luxury retail and gift divisions at New York's Bergdorf Goodman before she moved to Neuchatel Chocolates to lead their North American sales division.

Caviar's Love Story

Finally, one fateful summer day, Hossein and Amy found themselves on opposite sides of the aisle at the New York Fancy Food Show where Hossein was representing another caviar brand and Amy was representing Neuchatel Chocolates. The two had dinner that night and three years later in 1991, Paramount Caviar was born.
