canthecan Can the Can


CONSERVAS DE PORTUGAL presents the research work on the history of the canning industry in Portugal, carried out by CAN THE CAN since 2012. We want to preserve the memory and tell the history of the national canning industry.

This project’s mission is to investigate, study, protect and preserve the material and immaterial heritage of all themes and areas related to the canning industry and – through this work – contribute to promote and disseminate its incredible history.

We intend CONSERVAS DE PORTUGAL project to be a cultural platform, open to all, becoming an international reference in the context of the canning industry and the sea.

A non-profit project, which is fueled by the efforts of several collaborators, private and institutional, to whom we give our thanks.
