An approximate translation: “Amieux Brothers / Sardines and other canned goods / 11 factories employing 3500 workers producing 12 million cans a year / Required on every can: Our motto is like our name: Always the best.” I like the pun on Amieux and à mieux.
I may forget litotes , but I never forget sardines. Amieux Freres continues to this day. Not a bad run.
