Conservas Pinhais Factory Tour, home of NURI includes a visit to the factory, through several stages of production. Please note, that the tour occurs in an operating factory. The activity in place will be the one planned by the production team for that day. Therefore and considering the limit imposed annually to the sardine fishing, Pinhais cannot guarantee that visitors will see fish handling on every visit. We kindly ask all visitors to arrive 15 minutes before the beginning of the tour. Each visitor must sanitize their hands and they must repeat it before entering the production area. The use of a safety kit is mandatory and will be provided by Pinhais. For food safety reasons, the visitor cannot carry food, jewelry and/or medicines into the production. At the end of the tour, the visitors should place the disposable equipment in the appropriate containers.
