Launched in 1959, the Conserverie Gonidec is the last sardine factory in the famed and scenic harbor of Concarneau, just off the coast of Brittany. Through the years, the company has remained steadfast in keeping alive the know-how and traditions of the fish canning industry in this charming little town.
The Cannery Gonidec selects and prepares the finest sardines with the same care and techniques of more than two generations. Fish are caught on day-boats, unloaded and brought to the cannery during the night and then processed early the next morning. After being sorted by size, they are cooked using traditional recipes and preserved in quality extra virgin olive oil and other natural ingredients. They are then packed by hand into individual tins.
Every step ensures that freshness and quality are maintained. No artificial flavors are used in the preparation. The techniques used, combined with the lack of artificial additives, allow the rich flavor of these gourmet sardines to shine.
The extra virgin olive oil does more than give these sardines a great flavor. The olive oil works to soften the fish and bones, so that the sardine can be eaten whole without a problem.
Sardines are one of the healthiest foods you can eat, and this herbal recipe also classifies them as one of the most delicious, too! These sardines are hand-packed in extra virgin olive oil with basil and thyme. Try them on toast with cream cheese for a snack or light meal! Made with organic extra virgin olive oil.
