Created in 1932 by Georges Hilliet near the fishing port of Quiberon, opposite Belle-Île-en-Mer, the Conserverie la Belle-Iloise has been manufacturing and distributing canned fish for over 85 years. Passed down from generation to generation, the Conserverie la belle-iloise has remained a family business that has grown while remaining faithful to its founding values: those of people from a place, the fishing port of Quiberon, and its universe, the sea…
A company concerned with conserving resources. A family business, the Conserverie la Belle-Iloise has a long-term vision and transmission. The concern to perpetuate resources is at the heart of its development and is intrinsically part of its values. On a daily basis, the Conserverie uses the resources at its disposal in a thoughtful manner, in all areas: environmental, social and societal.
“La Conserverie la belle-iloise engages in responsible fishing daily commitment is to select our fishermen who, like us, are concerned with respect for natural resources and the environment. We work with different fish while respecting the seasonality of the species, the minimum fishing size while selecting the methods of capture. “
- Fish waste is 100% recycled, dedicated to animal feed.
- The sardine cooking oil is 100% revalued for the production of bio-fuel
- The Cannery weaves local partnerships with fishermen selected for the quality of their work and respect for the resource.
- The cannery recycles the water from the tanks which is used to sterilize cans, for cleaning the production site.
It takes several dozen hours for the best sardine plants to acquire this subtle know-how which allows the bones to be removed from sardines without touching the flesh.
This avoids lifting the fillets and therefore drying out the flesh during cooking. The appearance, but also all the qualities of a sardine in semi-fruity extra virgin olive oil are preserved: richness, flavor, softness … without the bones!
Ingredients: Sardines (80%), extra virgin olive oil (18.8%), salt.
