O Melhor do Ribatejo

Do you feel a particular sense of pride associated with a certain location, whether it be the town you grew up in, the college you attended, or your home country? O Melhor do Ribatejo is a line of handmade, genuine products created not only out of a deep love for Ribatejo, the central region in Portugal, but also out of a desire to keep traditions alive.

“The team is comprised of two designers passionate about Ribatejo, dedicated to finding the best products in the region, prepared with love and care, unveiling the work of the local artisans.”

O Melhor do Ribatejo produces artisan ingredients and foods like honey, olive oil, hot sauce, salt, and cheeses that are proudly made in the Ribatejo province. Designer Miguel Saturnino injected the packaging with a rustic feel, complete with reds, greens, and yellows whose hues almost appear to be slightly faded from the sun. However, a product line that is also a love letter to Ribatejo requires more than just a pastoral quality, and what better way to achieve this than to feature the faces of people from the region?

“The people from Ribatejo with their unique characteristics and their very strong personalities, are the image of the products and brand.  As a tribute to the people and to folklore, we selected some of the most emblematic figures of the region and reproduced their most popular expressions and funny dialogues with hilarious translations.”
