Guided tour by the team at Conservas Pinhais

In the heart of Matosinhos, Pinhais Canned Foods have been an unavoidable element of the Portuguese canning industry since 1920 and a world reference in the sector.

The visit Pinhais Living Museum includes the beautiful factory entrance hall (and its surprising staircase), goes through the different production areas with observation of the traditional and artisan work method. It finishes in the section in which each can is wrapped by hand, just like a Christmas present.


With limited production, each can of the Pinhais and NURI brands represents a special and unique masterpiece. Everything converges in a can of incomparable quality, which in some countries has become a cult product, a symbol of the best moments of life.

Meet the Pinhais family and all the affection and dedication with which they have been working for almost 100 years to offer what customers call "the best sardine in the world".
