Tuna Callipo in Water Glass Jar

Tuna Callipo is cut by hand in the richest and most tender part of the tuna. The main difference from standard canned tuna is its fat content, which gives it an incredibly creamy texture. These tuna fillets, tender and with a fine taste, are selected and prepared by craftsmen fresh and by hand. 100% natural and preserved in water. The fish is peeled and processed manually, which is of particular importance in the manufacture of the product since the absence of chemical products preserves the natural properties and ensures high-quality Tuna Callipo and food safety. As soon as the fresh fish is received, it is cleaned and sorted: only the back pieces, fat-free and very tender, are used to make the preserves. An exceptional product, the canned tuna fillet in water can be enjoyed as an aperitif, on a slice of good bread.

At Callipo, canned fish are handcrafted respecting traditional and sustainable fishing arts. These treatments translate into an exquisite taste and an incomparable texture that mark the difference of their products!. Callipo has existed since 1913 as it is marked on the front of its headquarters in Calabria.

These are then arranged one by one and manually in a jar, meticulously, so that they remain whole. It is only at the last moment that the olive oil is poured for preservation, but without concealing the taste.
