The cannery - the pearl of the gods is an artisanal fish cannery based in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. In 1903, Eugène Gendreau, the great-grandfather of the current leader, Philippe Gendreau, took over a small sardine "confectionery" established in 1856 in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. There he discovered the specialty of the place, an old recipe for preparing sardines, the key to his success. The Gendreau - la Perle des Dieux cannery is the oldest cannery in Vendée. It offers a wide range of seafood.
