Tradition, Flavors and know-how

Since 1983, ManarThon has been striving to combine 1st quality fish and know-how. Our manufacturing is a mixture of traditional methods and ultra modern manufacturing processes. A great part of the work is hand-made by our workers, following an ancestral and irreplaceable expertise, thus ensuring faultless quality.


Such quality is also the result of our raw material: fish and first quality oil.
