A free 45-minute guided tour of the factory premises
An innovative approach

The factory was custom-designed to combine modernity with traditional expertise in order to provide the best-quality products. Through this tour, you’ll discover the many operations necessary to turn high-quality fish into a gourmet canned product.

5382 ft2 of sound- and light-enhanced thrills

Travel through time to discover the fish conservation profession from the ’20s to the present day. Experience a historical reconstruction of the first Conserverie la Belle-Îloise workshops, dating from 1932. You’ll find it all here, still very much alive, from the songs of the canners to the scents of the seasonings.

Handmade

We are supplied on a daily basis with fresh sardines during the fishing season (May to November). Expert hands – as agile as those of yesterday’s lace workers – perform timeless tasks before your eyes. Conserverie belle-iloise is one of the last remaining canneries to make use of the expertise that guarantees the finesse of its products. The various steps of our production process are explained and commented as they are performed.
