Can the Can Lisboa

Welcome to the world where tradition and quality are put together to offer the greatest gastronomic treasures of Portuguese CAN`s.

CAN THE CAN opened in 2012 with a concept which is unique in the world: to promote the national canning industry, Portuguese tinned food and traditional conservation methods. Our cuisine is typically Atlantic, defined by the use of natural produce and healthy ingredients.

We strive to elevate cans to an exclusive product, through our innovative recipes, with the belief that quality of preparation and presentation can help promote the consumption of tinned fish.

Our cuisine shows that Portuguese tinned fish are an exclusive product, with an enormous tradition and quality, which can be used with a combination of fresh ingredients, highlighting the quality of preparation and presentation. 

Portugal’s long coastline, from early days, has led the Portuguese towards the sea in search for new horizons. In this way a maritime odyssey was born creating a culture of seafood, enhanced by the access to excellent fish.

The appropriate conditions – extensive coastline, abundant, high-quality fish, and Portugal’s excellence in the art of fishing – have led to the rapid growth of canning in Portugal, from the 19th century onwards. 

The national canning industry was born in Setubal, Portugal, in 1854, to a country with a unique coastal zone, ancestral fishing tradition and unparalleled fish quality. It is also the oldest and most beloved industry in our country.

Can the Can stems from a fascination for this industry, and we aim to dignify it and bring it to a wider audience.
