Angonabeiro supports 40,000 coffee producing families and wants to revitalize the sector

The Nabeiro Group purchases 1400 tons of coffee annually in Angola, supporting 40,000 producing families in this Portuguese-speaking country, and promises to revitalize the Angolan Robusta coffee sector by honoring the commitment of Commander Rui Nabeiro, the company announced this Tuesday.


According to the president of the Nabeiro Group's executive committee, Rui Miguel Nabeiro, who was speaking this Tuesday, at the company's headquarters in Luanda, during the celebrations of Angonabeiro's 25th anniversary, the date represents the reinforcement of the Nabeiro Group's commitment to Angola.

"This celebration represents, above all, the reinforcement of the Nabeiro Group's commitment to Angola, a strategic and extremely important market for the group's growth and sustainability, whose great ambition is to reach the top 10 coffee brands in the world", he said.

Rui Miguel Nabeiro alluded to the words of Commander Rui Nabeiro, his grandfather, saying "Angola is the reason for our existence", to mention that the 25 years of Angonabeiro, a company of the Nabeiro Delta Cafés Group, translates into the affirmation of the company's relationship with Angola.

"In fact, in a group over 60 years old, Angola was and will always be a very important pillar for Delta", he highlighted.

Angonabeiro, a leading company in the roasted coffee market in Angola, has been operating in the country since 1998 and its 25th anniversary celebrations took place this Tuesday.

Members of the company's management, government authorities, partners, friends and other guests took a guided tour of the company and later attended the unveiling of a plaque in honor of commander Rui Nabeiro, who died in March this year.

"If we all wanted to, the world would be wonderful. The world would be extraordinary", is the message from Rui Nabeiro, founder of Grupo Nabeiro – Delta Cafés, engraved on the plaque in his honor, accompanied by a photograph.

Regarding the Nabeiro Group's relationship with Angola, Rui Miguel Nabeiro signaled that the country is today "one of the main markets" for the company, it is "another lung", and that Luanda is the "second home after Campo Maior, in Portugal, where the other production unit is located".

Among the company's challenges, he mentioned the revitalization of Angola's Robusta coffee sector and "ensuring that we can ensure that farmers do not abandon their lands and continue to produce coffee".

"For this to be possible, it is essential to be close to coffee producers, support them, overcome logistical constraints, visit coffee production areas, provide training and support so that they do not give up and that they have more production every year", he highlighted.

Nabeiro also noted that over the 25 years, Angonabeiro reached more than 40,000 families, who were supported and then also purchased their coffee "at a fair price".

"More than a mission, this has been our commitment over these 25 years. And the numbers show the path we are taking. Every year we buy 1400 tons of national coffee in Angola, of which we export 1000 tons", he pointed out.

"Also in the industry, we position ourselves as the largest national roaster with values close to 400 tons and with 'expertise' that is recognized by everyone who works in the sector and in particular by our customers", he argued.

And the chairman of the board of directors of Grupo Nabeiro, João Manuel Nabeiro, expressed "gratitude and enthusiasm" for Angonabeiro's journey, guaranteeing that it will continue "to write new chapters (...) honoring Commander Rui Nabeiro's commitment to Angolan coffee" so that the sector gets closer to "the place it already occupied".

Francisco Duarte, Portuguese ambassador to Angola, intervened to say that Angonabeiro lives up to its founder's vision, supporting more than 40 thousand peasant families whose main source of income is the production and marketing of coffee.

"I am sure that Commander Rui Nabeiro would be proud of this company, which is an inspiration for business relations between Angola and Portugal. I am convinced that our companies, Portuguese and Angolan, together will make a decisive contribution to overcoming the challenge of diversification economy of Angola", highlighted the Portuguese diplomat.

Angonabeiro currently has around 120 workers and 95 percent of this workforce are Angolan staff.
