I have been advised by my local shop that Connetable has gone out of business. Do you know anything about this... If so I am devastated. They are far and away my favorite. Any recommendations about other high quality sardines; particularly from Brittany?
Hello fellow members !
Connetable sardines are still on their almost two centuries old feet !
Leader on the french market they still make more than a half billion dollars with sardines…
What's the problem with Connetable in the US ? I've been told that customs fees are protecting american so called sardine cans. I supposed Connetable are just too expensive for retailing as only a small community of connoisseurs is able to appreciate quality in sardine cans. You are part of it. Congratulations.
You can also taste Les Mouettes d'Arvor from Concarneau in Brittany,they're often better than the best of Connetables, also try La Perle des Dieux from Vendée, they're as good.
Also taste Capitaine Cook's sardines from Brittany, they're worth the bite.
I do understand how desperate you must have been with such bad news about Connetable and how shocking it could have been…
I'm happy to give relief with good news from my side of the ocean.
