With beginning in September 2020, the work carried out by Market Access aimed at expanding Beira Douro‘s products to these different markets, by prospecting potential clients, qualifying commercial leads, setting B2B meetings and always with the overall goal of closing new deals. The internationalization project of Beira Douro will continue over the next months and the main purpose is to sign new commercial partnerships with distributors/importers of medium-size stores and the HORECA channel.

The proximity, dedication, and ease of communication is such that we view Market Access as an extension of our own company, but with the added value of gaining a strong network of contacts which opens up the possibility of finding new partners at an international level. A young team, yet professionally mature.“
