On April 25th, Vicente Peres, a man who did not like to drink coffee alone and was always attentive to the needs of consumers, created SICAL – Sociedade Importora de Cafés, Lda. Thus, SICAL starts its activity in Porto as an importer of roasted pure coffees. The company’s growth and the intensification of commercial activity led to the opening of a delegation in Rua da Alfândega, in Lisbon, with eight employees. In 1987, SICAL is acquired by Nestlé, becoming an enriching partnership. Until today, innovation, honesty and always coming back to our origins is what distinguishes SICAL.
