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
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.
