In 1891, Bernardo Ortiz de Zarate founded in Vizcaya (Spain) Conservas Ortiz. Since then, five generations have overseen the family business and continued to advance the artisanal and traditional fishing and processing techniques of Bernardo. From the beginning, Ortiz has dedicated itself to the preparation of the highest quality canned seafood. Today the Conservas Ortiz label is one of the most recognized labels in the world for tuna, anchovies and other related specialty canned fish, with products sold in over 40 countries.

 

The painstaking respect for tradition by workers whose parents and grandparents performed the same tasks for the generations of Ortiz owners is still followed closely today. The fillets are prepared using the traditional method of trimming and filleting each anchovy by hand, which ensures that high quality is maintained. Once the anchovies reach port, they are cleaned and placed in barrels where they are left to mature for at least six months. This is followed by a six-step process of having the anchovies de-boned and filleted by hand. Caught close to the coast in the spring using nets, they are classified, salted and then kept until they reach perfect maturity. Once the anchovies are properly preserved, they are either packaged whole in saltwater, or hand filleted one by one and packaged in olive oil or salt for preservation.
