THE ANCHOVY

A MEDITERRANEAN PRODUCT

The anchovy is a oily fish and an emblematic ingredient on the Mediterranean Diet. The olive oil from the best Spanish olives trees benefits also the human health.

Its consumption is highly recommendable to maintain a well-balanced diet, rich in Omega 3, which contributes in regulating lowering cholesterol levels.

Anxoves of l'Escala S.A. also offers anchovy fillets in organic extra virgin olive oil.

TRADITION

Craftsmanship and exepertise

We have been salting and packing anchovies since 1940. We carefully select the raw materials using traditional methods and expertise passed down from generation to generation since fish first began to be salted, with the arrival of the Greeks and Phoenicians in Empúries in the 6th and 5th centuries BC.
This base and our exacting selection and preparation of the best fish available allow us to make an exquisite product of exceptional quality with unique texture and flavour.
