Sardines in organic extra virgin olive oil
The European sardine, Sardina Pichardus, has long been an important food in the countries around the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coast. When the canning industry started using it at the end of the 19th century, the fish got a new larger spread. Conservas Ortiz works in the traditional way where the fish are cleaned and washed each by hand and then placed in a can with extra virgin olive oil.
About the manufacturer
From northern Spain, Conservas Ortiz has been fishing responsibly using traditional methods since 1891, but the history goes back to 1850 when Petra López de Aréchaga Nafarrate was born. She married Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate and the two founded the company to work with canned food. After Bernardo's death, she ran the company and today it is the fifth generation in the same family that runs the company.
Conservas Ortiz works hard to build credibility around the catch. You want sustainable fishing but there are problems in the fishing sector. Conservas Ortiz is actively working to ensure that the species they catch continue to be renewed in the future. At the same time, care is taken not to harm other species during the day's work. Traditional fishing methods are therefore used as a fishing rod to catch tuna and nets to catch anchovies. Both are, among other things, dolphin safe.
