The story behind the brand

For over 100 years the Gendreau cannery has been developing traditional expertise and French manufacturing methods to offer consumers high-quality seafood products.

From classic combinations that have build the brand’s reputation to the most original flavours, the company’s entire culinary heritage is preserved at the cannery.

Le Trésor des Dieux has a range of canned seafood – sardines, mackerel, trout, salmon, tuna, anchovies – presented whole, in fillets and cooked in flakes or spreads.

Known for being some of the tastiest and finest sardines on the Atlantic coast, this exceptional quality has made the Gendreau cannery unique.
