TERRIUS is born in the Serra de S. Mamede – Alto Alentejo - Portugal, one of the largest biodiversity reserves in the Iberian Peninsula, having as the main objective the sustained production, the preservation and commercialization of the wild products, the fruits and the vegetables of excellence from the region. It uses simple transformation processes, such as the dehydration and the development of natural canned products, preserving the unique characteristics of the raw materials, in order to bring to the world the original flavours and aromas from this land.

As a producers group, TerriuS is the result of the desire of a group of “young people” linked to the agricultural activity to “get their hands in the soil”. The idea emerged at the beginning of the year 2011, driven by the desire to build a distinctive and innovative project in the agri-food sector, based on the establishment of local partnerships of trust and fair trade with small producers and industries in the region.

TerriuS’ mission involves adding value to the local products, including the recovery of the PDO and PGI certifications based on a local sustained development which promotes the preservation of the natural heritage and the recognition of the region.

TerriuS works daily to develop new products based on the quality and excellence of the local raw materials, which by having the innovation and the image as a differentiating factor, allow the valorization of its products and the Alentejo region.
