Helix Consulting project was started in 2005 to foster the development of snail farming activities, in collaboration with the International Institute of Heliciculture, based in Cherasco, and with Euro Helix s.r.l.

Helix Consulting offers farmers all the support needed for proper management of snail farms, by supplying materials and technologies for site management and providing ongoing customised and rational advice aimed at meeting farmers' needs for training and information in their business.

The services provided by Helix Consulting are primarily, though not exclusively, addressed to farmers of Helix Aspersa, considering this marketable snail breed currently offers the best investment to yield ratio.

The project was conceived by Fabio De Palma, appointed as the official representative of the International Institute of Heliciculture of Cherasco (Italy) in Eastern and Southern European countries (namely, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Ukraine), although the scope of his business is likely to be extended further to other countries.
