The Groix & Nature Cannery celebrates its 20th anniversary
The Groix & Nature adventure began in 2000, on the island of Groix, an island land less than 10 miles from the port of Lorient. Natural & wild, Groix is a preserved territory where magic is revealed every day. In our production workshop located in Port Lay, the recipes are browned, simmered, and cooked to the rhythm of the tides.

Groix & Nature know-how is inspired by a team of enthusiasts who have been built up over the years. 19 men and women living year round on the island, proud of their roots, cook authentic recipes using raw materials mainly from Breton fishing. This real local sustainable development project keeps island life going by maintaining jobs on the island.
