People are the reason for our success. Without them, our journey of challenges and successes would not have been possible.
Our secret, if it exists, lies in the dedication of each of our employees. In the care and attention they dedicate to what they do. In the pride they feel when they see our products, fruit of their labour, spread all over the world.
Our team is currently composed of about 200 people. 40 work in administration and 150 in production (production, packing and warehouse). Our own brand stores, with 11 employees, contribute to this number.
We have a highly qualified team that includes technically skilled chemists and engineers and extraordinarily creative designers. This has enabled us to diversify our product portfolio and broaden the markets in which we operate.
We pride ourselves on practising equal opportunities. Women represent 90% of our human capital and form the majority in all areas of the company, including management positions and the Board of Directors.
An example of this was the appointment, in the summer of 2018, of Marta Araújo, PhD in theoretical chemistry from the University of Porto as CEO for the 2018-2020 biennium.
It is precisely our concern for social issues that has led us to adhere to SMETA ethical trade audits, which examine compliance with aspects such as workers’ rights, health and safety, the environment and business ethics.
