The origin of our company was in North Rhine Westphalia, in the small town of Burscheid, in the 70s.
Our founder, a Portuguese immigrant, whose name our company still bears today, started there with a small store selling traditional Portuguese food mainly for the country people.
That was the beginning.
In 1996, after the sale of the store, he migrated to the Lake Constance region, to Singen am Hohentwiel and opened here a small delicatessen.
This was the new beginning.
In 2003, the company succession slowly took place.
With the new and current managers, Paula Fonseca and Pedro Correia, in 2006, in the Stuttgart area, the second store was born.
Subsequent important events:
2007 Online Shop Feinesverpackt.de
2014 Goin Consulting, a new team responsible for the off-trade channel, with expertise in all areas, from initial negotiation to on-store actions
2016 New corporate identity of Fonseca stores with separation of the larger business units
2017 Fonseca selection took shape as an umbrella brand, which means best price/quality choice
2017 Third Fonseca store in Wangen im Allgäu, Germany
2018 Launch in Germany, Switzerland and Austria of the Alfacinha project
