Espinaler Products and their Galician Origins

The origin of canned goods in Spain dates back to the year 1840. On the Galician coast, a tradition of preserving fish through salting or smoking, especially sardines, was already well established. In less than a year, the first fish canning factory came into existence. This echoes the discovery by Nicolas Appert in the 18th century, demonstrating that food could be preserved for extended periods by heating them for a specific duration.
