Delta Cafés

The company DELTA / CAFÉS associates with POM2018.

DELTA CAFÉS was born in 1961. In that year, Manuel Rui Azinhais Nabeiro decided to create his own brand of coffees and started the activity in the town of Campo Maior. Starting in the second half of the 1970s, Delta’s commercial structure consolidated decisively, calmly addressing the new requirements of the market: development of new products and services of global quality.

Delta Cafés has been making a continued bet on international markets. Exports account for around 25% of Nabeiro Group turnover, resulting from the Group’s business relations with more than 40 countries, including: South Africa; Germany; Andorra; Angola; Belgium; Brazil; Cape Verde; Canada; USA.; France; Luxembourg; Mozambique; United Kingdom and Sao Tome and Principe.

The market leader in coffee shops in Portugal, Delta is the Coffee of your life.

CARMIM

CARMIM joins the POM2018 by sponsoring the WRE course that is renamed: LONG DISTANCE WRE / CARMIM.

CARMIM was founded in 1971 with the aim of producing and marketing wine, from the grapes of a group of winemakers from the region. Today, with approximately 850 associates corresponding to 3,600 hectares of vineyards, CARMIM has built around its 44 years of history an image of prestige and success, based on the recognized quality of its products. The quality of the raw material, coming from a region of appellation of origin, is one of the assets of this Cooperative, along with human capital and an agro-industrial complex of 8 hectares endowed with the most advanced technology. Here can be vinified 1,500,000 kilos of grape per day, bottled 21,000 bottles per hour and stored up to 33 million liters.

CARMIM is present in 34 countries, and its products have received more than 600 national and international awards. It is one of the main drivers of socioeconomic development in the region of Reguengos de Monsaraz, functioning as an essential support for associated agricultural enterprises and their families. Among the brands of wine, we can highlight the Garrafeira dos Sócios, Monsaraz Premium, Bom Juiz, Régia Colheita, Monsaraz Millennium, Monsaraz Reserva, Monsaraz Monovarietais e Bivarietais, Reguengos Reserva, Monsaraz, Reguengos, Terras d’el Rei e Olaria.

In addition to wine, CARMIM also produces quality olive oils in the Terras d’el Rei and Monsaraz ranges. Next week will be launched the Reguengos olive oil, a gourmet product destined to a very demanding market niche. Presented in an elegant 0.5L screened bottle, this Extra Virgin Extra Batch Olive Oil has an acidity of 0.5º and will be available in limited quantities.

Investments have been an absolute priority in CARMIM’s strategies. Since 2009, 3 investment projects under PRODER have been executed, totaling around 10 million euros. 2 applications were devoted to the technological modernization of the winery and 1 to the mill. Already in 2015, under the PDR 2020, an investment project for the olive oil mill was submitted in the amount of 250,000 euros. It is planned until the end of 2015 to submit an application for the winery to the same support area.

Since 2011, CARMIM has been jointly certifying its Quality Management Systems, Environmental Management and Food Safety Management, respectively for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 22000. In 2013 it obtained the IFS Food version 6 certification, which facilitates their integration into International Markets.

The cartographer’s work on the competition maps in S. Bartolomeu do Outeiro are running at a very good pace so that everything is ready in October 2017.

It’s a very challenging work in the understanding of the cartographers, but at the same time very gratifying.

Some terrain photos of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th days can be consulted in the tab “Technical Information“.

Another POM’18 partner

ApiFernandes is associated to the event with the beautiful honey produced on the slopes of Alentejo.

José Miguel Fernandes is a young beekeeper from the Alentejo, who inherited his father’s experience of decades to get a good harvest of honey.

Honey is a totally natural food produced by bees from the filling of the flowers. There are several types of honey, with different characteristics like flavor, color, viscosity, etc. What makes these factors change are not the bees, but rather their food, the type of flower, climatic conditions and geographical areas.

ApiFernandes honey is derived almost entirely from the rosemary blossom, although per day a bee goes through more than 50 miles of flowers. Each bee makes on average 13 to 17 trips from the flower to the beehive. Honey is a food that has long been used since antiquity, often used for medicinal purposes, and there are even many biblical passages where honey is mentioned.
