According to words spoken by its founder, businessman and entrepreneur Manuel Dias, “Saven started in 1988 with the objective of exporting Portuguese food products to Portuguese communities around the world. It was a trade which Portuguese importers used to acquire the enormous variety of products the immigrants were used to.” With a new market of foreign clients our objective changed to exclusive partnerships with Portuguese producers. Drinks, namely wine, became part our portfolio. Initially Lua Cheia-Saven, LDA, formerly called Lua Cheia Em Vinhas Velhas, LDA, was created with which SAVEN, S.A. was associated. Nevertheless we remained loyal to the exclusive marketing of Portuguese products.
