Les Mouettes D’Arvor in Brittany, Conserverie Gonidec, is known for many things, but their ethically fished tuna is among the best in the entire world.
This traditional French recipe uses generations of learnings and work to give you the best tasting organic tuna in brine and basil. Without alcohol and ready-to-eat you can use this tuna in basil sauce for all your meals whether it be sandwiches, salads, or hot meals.

At Gonidec, the job of canning has been passed down from generation to generation. Here, in the last cannery of Concarneau, quality is the key word. Here, we do not deviate from the principles that made and continue to make the fame of the Seagulls of Arvor: the freshness of the fish and the work by hand. This concern for quality is also present at the time of the sale of each box.
