YURRITA: the brand

Yurrita Group is first and foremost a family business, founded in 1867.

A long history of passion

Originally, YURRITA was dedicated to the production and sale of pickled and salted fish which it distributed from Mutriku, to the rest of Spain, by horse-drawn carts.
The activity started in the basement of the Yurrita family house.
This original cannery is known as "Casa Mauleón".
Of all the current Spanish canneries, this building is probably the oldest of those dedicated to the production of canned fish.

Mauleon House

The company was founded by Mr. José Miguel Mauleón, in the very place of residence of the family: the "Casa Mauleón".

It was by marrying Agapito Yurrita that José Miguel's daughter, Francisca, formed the second generation, and the beginning of Yurrita's history as an agri-food company, specializing in the canning and salting industry.
Five generations later, with 150 years of history, YURRITA is the oldest cannery in the Basque Country of Spain, still in operation.

An international reputation

After the war, the company concentrated its efforts on the international market, in order to maintain its activity in these difficult years.
An export effort which then continued.
And thanks to which YURRITA is a canned fish brand recognized in more than 60 countries around the world, especially by the Cantabrian anchovy "00", the company's flagship product.
