OUR SUPPLIERS

We have a direct relationship with all of our Portuguese suppliers & we are passionate about supporting smaller businesses that provide high quality, artisan produce.

Campos Santos focus on traditional methods of manufacture. Many of the products are handmade which gives them a unique & unrivalled quality. They select the best small suppliers to work with located throughout Portugal. They are committed to delivering the best to their customers & continuing the traditions passed down over generations which fits perfectly with our ethos.

He farms the Bisaro pig breed which is native to Northern Portugal.

QUINTA DOS JUGAIS

Quinta dos Jugais is a company based in the heart of the beautiful Serra da Estrela. We were attracted to them as they have a huge range of traditional products that are of a really high quality. This was in many ways enough to make us decide to work with them however they also successfully combine this with a modern & contemporary Portuguese image which is a rare achievement. 

 

LA GONDOLA

La Gondola is one of the oldest fish canning factories in Portugal. They continue to use traditional methods of canning using the freshest fish possible. We were impressed by the quality & presentation of the fish & of course the taste so were more than happy to include a wide range of La Gondola products in 1386.

CHILLI GOURMETS

Made in Heswall, Wirral they another addition to our range of locally produced goods. Jane Fern the lady behind Chilli Gourmets, is passionate about chillis but as she would say its not all about the heat but layering flavours to maximise the taste of the food. It should complement not overwhelm.
