Fruit and Veg across borders

Carmo & Silvério was born when two friends and brothers in law – Horácio do Carmo and António José Silvério – founded the company with the purpouse of selling the production of two parishes in Torres Vedras at the Lisbon Market (MARL – Mercado Abastecedor da Região de Lisboa) and posteriorly, from the producers of the Póvoa de Varzim to the Porto Market.

In 2004 we created the first vegetable auction in Portugal, mirroring what was already done in Spain, opening the doors to the export market. In 2010 growers joined the company as shareholders and two years later we were recognized as a growers organization. In 2015, we also started to work in fruit, opening the commercialization to other foreign markets. Nowadays, with the entry of Pedaços de Natureza as a shareholder, it has further expanded the national and international market.

Is our production area, 200ha of which are fruits and 100ha are vegetables.

Export represents the majority of our activity.

Our business volume, with production of 10 130 tons of fruit and veg, of which 7064 are veg.
