The 2019 vintage sardines are illustrated by Albert Quentel. The Breton artist is inspired by the landscapes of this beautiful region. He uses acrylic and watercolor to render the blues and yellows of the rugged cliffs.
Abert Quentel explains: "I start with patches of colour, I release the shape a second time. What fascinates me the most is the light, the colors on the beaches, in the puddles. I like to use colors to express this feeling very strongly emphasize ".

For this product, the sardines were hand-processed freshly caught, first deep-fried in sunflower oil and then canned in extra-virgin olive oil. On each tin you will also find the name of the fishing port, the name of the ship that caught the sardines and the year.

La Compagnie Bretonne du Poisson is a family business that is now in its fourth generation. It all started with Alain Furic, who first made a name for himself as a trader in Norway lobsters (langoustines), which he bought from the fishermen in Gulvinec in Brittany, before expanding his activities as a fish wholesaler to include mackerel and sardines.

At the age of only 14, Alain's son Jules joined his father's business and in 1923 they founded the Compagnie Bretonne du Poisson together. The company's specialty is now canned fish (mackerel and sardines) and Norway lobsters, which are transported to and distributed in the region's markets on then-modern ice-block carts. Finally, Jules also drives distribution to Paris and the rest of France.

The company is now run by Alain's grandchildren and has developed into a modern but traditional company that produces mackerel, sardines and Norway lobsters as well as tuna, soups and other fish preparations. All this with great care and love for the product.

Manufacturer's address: La Compagnie Bretonne du Poisson - Rue des Conserveries - Port de Saint-Guénolé - 29760 Penmarc'h - France


Even the ancient Romans valued sardines and ate them salted, marinated or smoked. To this day, the sardine is and will remain a high-quality product if the quality and production methods are right.

Thanks to their short lifespan, they have absorbed very few pollutants from the sea and have a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements. 100g of sardines (about 8 fish) contain 40% of the recommended daily dose of calcium and 100% of the vitamin D necessary to absorb the trace elements. In order for the human body to be able to absorb all of these valuable nutrients, it is essential that the sardine is preserved in high-quality olive oil, because only this oil allows the human body to break it down and metabolize it.

For the sake of enjoyment, however, you should definitely not do without the many other great creations from the incomparably rich range of flavors of canned sardines: sardines in a fruity sauce, in white wine, in butter, with water and lemon... try it out!
