With over 100 years of history, Porthos is produced by Conservas Portugal Norte, a company with a long tradition in the manufacture and sale of canned fish. They are family-owned, from founding in 1912 all the way to the present day.
Originally founded in the fishing village of Sesimbra, in the 1940's Conservas moved to Matosinhos, where they built out their canneries.
The fish that gets packed into tins arrives every day from a fishing port that is located less than 10 minutes from the factory. Preserves range from tuna, mackerel, horse mackerel, mackerel, cod, and other qualities of fish with a variety of flavors and condiments.
