In 1891, in Vizcaya (Spain), Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate founded Conservas Ortiz. Since then a total of 5 generations have overseen the family business and continued to advance the artisanal and traditional fishing and processing techniques of Bernardo. From the
beginning, Ortiz has dedicated themselves to the preparation of the highest quality canned
Today the Conservas Ortiz label is one of the most recognized labels in the world for
tuna, anchovies and other related specialty canned fish.
The high quality of Ortiz products is
internationally acknowledged and are sold today in over 40 Countries.
Preserving the world's fisheries is one of today’s major environmental problems and Ortiz
remains very concerned about the future of their fish stocks, as well as regeneration of the
species they catch. Their use of live bait and trolling techniques to catch the Bonito del Norte Tuna, and the
use of "purse seine nets" for catching anchovies, supports the environment. Working using only
artisanal methods, Ortiz takes particular care to preserve the art of fishing and the
freshness of the fish.
Saveur Magazine said Bonito tuna is "one of the great gastronomic pleasures of every day life."
