With our passion for tradition, we combine innovation

We are a Portuguese company and we design our portfolio by combining innovation with tradition. This culture translates into products of the best quality and taste, which arrive daily to the homes of consumers, since 1971. This is the purpose of our existence.

We offer a diversified portfolio consisting of food products that meet different needs and adapt to different consumer moments, trends and consumer profiles.

The Ferbar brand is well-known for its Easter Almonds and for its Dried Fruit and Nuts. Quince marmalade and canned vegetables also delight thousands of consumers everyday in Portugal and around the world, since FERBAR products are sold in different international markets.

All our products respect a basic principle: the highest quality standards, which makes Ferbar a brand that consumers trust.

Our values reflect our family ideals and we work with care everyday to bring products of excellence to consumers.

It is not what we do that defines us. It is what we are. Integrity guides our ethos. We care for the environment, the community and our stakeholders. We nurture relationships of trust. And we improve as we continually embrace new challenges.

We adopt the best practices in governance and management, with a major focus on food quality and safety. Check our Quality and Food Safety Policy.

 

Our history

1971

Ferbar - Fernando Barros Produtos Alimentares S.A., was founded in March 1971 in Oporto. The activity is focused on the distribution of food products.

 

The founder, Fernando Barros, is an entrepreneur linked to the food sector since the beginning. Ferbar started its activity as a distributor of food products, and later integrated the industrial production in its operation.

 

The Ferbar Group is composed by the Ferbar distribution company and two other industrial companies - Alibar and Calimenta - dedicated mainly to the food co-packing and production of fruit products, confectionery and sauces.

 

We are a family business, with around 160 workers dedicated to ensuring that our food products have the highest quality and taste to consumers, so that FERBAR may be your brand of choice.

 

There are two very special seasons for us. For Easter, we offer our well-known and highly appreciated sugar-coated almonds and chocolate almonds, while Christmas is a peak season for enjoying and gifting our dried fruit, nuts and chocolates.
