It is a country that has values and a culture that I really like. In Portugal, I was impressed with the level of training, languages, dedication to work. People work a lot and in a very collaborative way and with a very high work ethic.
Anne Lenz (Portugal GM)Nestlé
Portugal is fundamental to Driscoll's European strategy because it allows the company to guarantee stable volumes and quality throughout the year. This is a factor that doesn't exist in any other region in Europe due to Portugal's edaphoclimatic conditions.
António Garcia (Former PM)Driscoll's
The decision to open the new unit in Portugal was because this was really the best solution. There are many good resources in Portugal, and we wanted to do something different.
Ricardo Flores (CEO)Mocoffee
