Pirate Cannery

Did you know that a third of all fish caught is never eaten because industrial fishing crowds out smaller businesses and pollutes the environment? In addition, more than 10 million tons of food are wasted in the fishing industry every year.

Preservation is a traditional, health-conscious method that preserves food for up to 5 to 10 years.

In St Laurent de Gosse, Landes, France, the artisan canning factory Pirate, founded by Lucie Lesgourgues, is taking a stand against this waste. Pirate aims to revolutionize fish consumption through innovative and sustainable recipes, always in harmony with the seasonal characteristics of the sea. The ingredients come from local, traditional catches and are processed by hand on an adapted farm. In its second year of existence, Pirate is already expanding in France and Europe.

Lucie also plans to expand her involvement with workshops on sustainable fishing practices. Pirate therefore not only stands for a brand, but for a movement towards a more conscious and sustainable use of seafood.
