El Manar Story

Manar Thon, market leader in Tunisia since 1983, specialises in canned tuna and sardines, which it markets under its famous El Manar brand.

Its factory, located near the port of Zarzis (Tunisia), combines traditional recipes with ultra-modern equipment. Most of the production is carried out manually by the expert hands of the workers, using an inimitable ancestral know-how that guarantees unique quality.

The fruit of many years of close collaboration, Nautilus Food is now proud to offer El Manar to French large retailers.
