From Comur to the World
Eels prepared by Comur are still regarded as one of Portugal’s most special delicacies, waiting to be revealed to the world. But Comur is not just about eels, and the company presents itself to the world in an original way that is well worth getting to know.
From the sea to the tin – from the tin to the world
Comur operates 23 stores throughout the country, which include the stores of O Mundo Fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa and Fábrica das Enguias. They represent the crowning point of a story, imaginatively retold in every concept and every tin, giving us the privilege of telling our story to thousands of people, every day.
Tribute to Portugal
Whether on a journey to the world surrounded by a sea of colour, light, sound, and fantasy at O Mundo Fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa stores, or in an ode to the literature and knowledge of books that we honour at our Biblioteca Conserveira stores, special mention goes to the ornamental blacksmiths highlighting the Portuguese tradition of art in ironwork and a daring store dedicated to Comur’s beginnings – Fábrica das Enguias (the Eel Factory).
All these spaces, that bring tradition and modernity together in one place, share a common denominator: the sharing of knowledge and truly Portuguese flavours that travel in each and every can to the four corners of the world.
the Prodigy of the Atlantic
The queen of all fish – the Portuguese sardine – a fish both noble and popular, has ascended the throne during the summer months for many years, showing off its crown up and down the country. But at O Mundo Fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa, the sovereign rules all year round.
And what better tribute could be paid than through the fantasy of the wonderful world of the circus, also noble and popular, in parallel with the extraordinary popular nobility of sardines?
Once an industry that boasted very festive labelling and colourful, animated designs, since then lost along the way and giving way to boring labels, the cans at O Mundo Fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa revisit and dignify this colourful, happy past of the canning industry. Full of fanciful colour, the sardine tins feature the years from 1916 to the present day, marking an important event and the most noteworthy people born each year.
At the six O Mundo Fantástico da Sardinha Portuguesa stores, the crown jewel stands, exultant and proud of its status. In Lisbon, Porto, Braga, Cascais, and Sintra, at each of our stores, 140 grams of pure taste of Portugal are displayed in preserving cans, revisiting the last century of Portuguese and world history and paying tribute to the Portuguese canning industry.
