Eyes That Don’t See Stomach That Don’t Feel

Adriano Ribeiro, pilot, and Luís Mendonça (Gémeo Luís), university professor of design, worked and lived in Macau. They were passionate about Portuguese gastronomy – who isn’t? – and, in the middle of the storm that was the economic crisis of 2008, they looked around and realized that our products had little or no appreciation in the international market. They start searching for the best producers, Luís developed the graphic image, (even if each packaging is designed by a different artist, invited by him), and José Gourmet was born. It was born in canned fish, jams, honey, vinegars and olive oils. He was born in quality, grew in beauty and matured with the conviction that we will not stop our journey here.
