The Portuguese brand "Jose gourmet" was created in 2008 in Lisboa. This company mixes high quality food with great packaging design. They want to promote Portugal by selecting the very best ingredients. Jose Gourmet combs the coasts of Portugal and Spain to find seafood of distinction. They believe in the principles of fair trade, often paying in advance and never negotiating for better pricing. The artwork of Luis Mendonça on the packaging is meant to pay homage to these fishermen and canneries who have dedicated their lives to their trade. Jose Gourmet's delicious sardines from the Atlantic and Mediterranean are prepared only with fresh fish, never frozen. They are made even tastier with the lemon that flavours the olive oil - a classic combination.
