Producer: Jakob Glatz | Conservas Pinhais

Where it's from: Matosinhos, Portugal

Why it’s unique: Currently, Pinhais is one of the only canning companies that remains faithful to the traditional methods of canning and is committed to carrying through 37 individual steps required to produce each can solely by hand.  By minimizing the use of industrial machinery in favor of manual labor, the company is reducing emissions and energy consumption for a greener footprint.  Plus, they maintain that their employees can even carry out the steps blindfolded. Pinhais proudly employs generations of women in its canning facility, grandmothers, mothers, and daughters, who have perfected the craft over several decades. They even have a secret tomato sauce recipe that is known by just a few staff members and is passed down verbally!

Ingredients: mackerel, 100% refined olive oil

How it tastes: The perfect snack if you want all fish but no skin or bones.  Tender and delicate, with just a hint of sweet olive oil, mackerel has a more delicate flavor than sardines or tuna, but is still rich and flavorful.

How to use it: Swap these in for wherever you usually use chicken or turkey, like on top of a salad or mixed into a pasta dish.  The texture can’t be beat!

What you get: One 4.4oz (125g) tin
