What does the adventure of traveling around the world taste like?

On board with Captain Gugg, 250 cans of NURI sardines circled the globe in 249 days, sailing without stops or technical assistance. Each of these cans preserves a part of this unique and symbolic story of courage, where fear was never an anchor.


The journey has ended, but the adventure of these cans is just beginning.

NURI, the artisanal sardine

With a selected and limited production, each NURI can symbolise a legacy.

NURI Products


NURI is one of the oldest and most iconic brands of Pinhais & Cª Lda. And why the name NURI? There are two stories… One recounts the reaction of an Arab upon opening a can. Upon seeing how the sardines shimmered, he exclaimed “NURI!” which means bright, a symbol of purity and perfection in his language. For the more romantic, the second story involves one of the company’s founders. As a well-traveled man, he spoke four languages and was responsible for marketing our artisanal sardines in foreign markets. During one of his trips to Spain, he fell in love with a beautiful woman named ‘NURIA.’ Now it’s up to you to choose one of the stories
