La Gondola

Our history

La Gondola Cannery Factory was founded by Italians who brought the first canning industries to Matosinhos, northern Portugal, in 1940. Investing in a new unit in the 1980s, La Gondola decided to venture into a diversified canning production. The company’s guidelines remain on high quality products. With the beginning of the century XXI, the growth of gourmet spaces has made the brand’s products increasingly sought after and appetizing in various markets. Internationalization: 80% of the manufactured products are destined for the export market, being present in multiple countries, covering several continents. Future: With an annual production volume of 5 million units, La Gondola aims for growth, remaining faithful to traditional manufacturing principles.
