AgroAguiar was founded in 2007 in Sabroso de Aguiar, right in the heart of Trás-os-Montes, where we find nature in its purest state. Inspired by our roots, we named the brand and wanted to make known to the world the ex-libris of the region, the chestnut.
The need to respond to the demands of our customers and the market has promoted the diversification of our offer. Currently, AgroAguiar cultivates, acquires, processes and distributes nuts, fruits and frozen vegetables for the national and international markets.
AgroAguiar is proud to source more than 90% of our fruit in Portugal through a close relationship with local farmers, co-operatives and companies.
