Hi, A feed used by professional snail farmers comes from Berton at www.bertonalimentationanimale.fr/index.htm - they will send sacks through the post but they're 25g - although they are relatively cheap at around 10 euro per bag. They produce different varieties - its worth a look.
I don't think they need it. I only started feeding it to mine about a month ago - the Snail Trail variety, and I'm pretty sure their parents live entirely on fruit, veg and occasional bits of meat and brown bread.
You'll still need to feed them other stuff as well but I like to give them the snail mix just to make sure they're getting all the vitamins and things they need, and because they really seem to like it.
