In the preparation of “Sardines in tomato” a series of steps must be followed. First, the raw material (always fresh) arrives at the facilities, straight from the port.
After reception, the head is removed, the fish is gutted, and it has its fin cut off. All parts are cleaned by our team by hand in a brine bath and packed according to size. This is followed by turning and cooking of the fish pieces in the steam cooking tunnel.
One of the key steps to achieve our exclusive flavor is the addition of the best tomato sauce (Martinete brand). After, the tins are hermetically sealed and sterilised in autoclaves to obtain a completely sterile product.
The tins are then washed and dried before proceeding with their packaging and boxing. The process concludes with storage of the product for subsequent shipment.
