The story behind the brand

Petit Pierre draws the best of the sea from its roots in Boulogne.

The brand perpetuates tradition and a cultural heritage that are the very essence of the fishing port of Boulogne-sur-Mer. Petit Pierre represents:

  • Boulogne’s identity
  • A family cannery business
  • 100% French manufacturing
  • Traditional expertise
  • Authentic products
  • Fresh, local and crafted seafood

A speciality: canned herring

Our Petit Pierre herring fillets are delicately hand-filleted and canned in the traditional way, as we have done since 1933. Try our herrings, made entirely in France using more responsible production methods.

New format! More compact, more practical.
