Paramount Caviar was founded by husband and wife team, Hossein Aimani and Amy Arrow-Aimani in 1991. Hossein's upbringing in Iran's Caspian Sea region fostered his passion for caviar and bringing high-end caviar to the United States. Amy Arrow-Aimani's expansive background in luxury retail at Bergdorf Goodman has led her to spearhead Paramount's corporate and retail gift line.
Paramount Caviar is one of the country's major caviar distributors that services wholesale, retail, and corporate audiences. We are proud to be the caviar of choice for high end restaurants and Michelin greats such as Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin in the United States and throughout the world. Additionally, many prestigious gourmet retailers rely on Paramount Caviar for their complete line of retail caviar products.
Alongside curating excellent caviar, our passion is educating people about caviar's history, science, and art. We have adapted our Caviar Vault private tastings into virtual caviar tastings to accommodate COVID-19 social distancing measures.
Today, the Caspian Sea sturgeons are endangered species, making all wild caviar from the Caspian Sea illegal to be sold. Paramount Caviar only distributes fresh caviar from farmed facilities throughout the world. All products when entering into the United States are carefully scrutinized for the proper documentation including the CITES documentation required by the United States to gain entry and to be sold within the United States. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species).
In an on going effort to protect this industry, Paramount Caviar prides itself on working with farmers all over the world in a mindful manner to protect the sustainability of the product for future generations.
