Welcome to Fremantle Sardines
We are a family owned and operated company. Our sardine processing factory was established in June 1988. Since migrating to Australia from Sicily, and while fishing for lobster in the waters off Fremantle, our father Francolino noticed a huge abundance of sardines.
After importing nets from Italy a few local Italian families began catching huge quantities of these wonderful sardines but soon found that they were only regarded as a fish for bait and pet food. Francolino was very frustrated at such a waste of a great food resource, thus the beginning of our processing operation.
