9.00

Skipjack tuna filets in Mohldo Cru from Santa Catarina. Azores Islands, Portugal

The “Molho Cru” has its origins in São Jorge’s “fajãs”, where in their gardens are cultivated onions, garlic, parsley, bell peppers and chilli peppers that make part of this sauce. This Azorean sauce has a different name according to the originating island: “Molho Cru” in São Jorge, “Molho Vilão” in São Miguel, “Molho das Vindimas” in Graciosa. This product is of a pure artisan character, where the onions, garlic, bell peppers and parsley, are chopped manually with all the care and affection of São Jorge’s people.

The Santa Catarina cannery is located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on the small chain of the Azores Islands. Here the fishermen use the Pole and Line method ( 1 man, 1 rod, 1 fishhook, 1 tuna), an environmentally friendly and sustainable fishing method with no by-catch. Greenpeace awarded the cannery the Most Sustainable Canned Tuna in the World. 

The island of Sao Jorge has 8,000 inhabitants and 120 of the women are employed by the cannery. All the packing, cleaning and labeling is done by hand in the traditional manner ensuring a quality of tuna unlike any other.
