“God wants, Man dreams, work is born”
Jose Gourmet combs the coasts of Portugal and Spain to find seafood of distinction. They believe in the principles of fair trade, often paying in advance and never negotiating for better pricing. The artwork of Luis Mendonça on the packaging is meant to pay homage to the these fishermen and canneries who rely on manpower and life long dedication to their trade.
Adriano Casal Ribeiro, aircraft pilot, dreamed! The work was born!
JOSE Gourmet was born when Adriano Casal Ribeiro, lived in Macau and dreamed of Portuguese delicacies that he was unable to buy.
Portugal lived written in markets of longing, without shine, and ACR dreamed of selling our country on the front line. Together with his wife, Sofia Almeida Santos, flight attendant, a designer friend, Luís Mendonça, reinvented the iconic products of Portugal!
Canned foods, olive oils, jams, Port wine, cherry and brandy. They chose the best producers in Portugal, encouraged good fair trade practices and created very attractive and sophisticated packaging to sell the best we produce.
They are passionate about human nature and their ability to create, cooperate and involve a society that aims to be more attentive, sustainable, diverse and socially responsible. That was how JOSE GOURMET was born!
