Celeiro is a kind of organic market or Portuguese health food store, which is committed to selling healthy and natural products. That’s why there are plenty of vegan (organic) products in the 43 stores spread all over Portugal. These include not only food but also cosmetics.
In the 1970s, Portugal was experiencing a moment of strong growth. Baixa de Lisboa was the largest commercial center in the country, where the first Portuguese supermarket was located. Here, there had been a warehouse selling loose grain. This served as inspiration for the choice of the name Celeiro, which means “barn”Ā in English.
In 1974, it was decided to open a store in front of this supermarket, similar to the first Reform Haus that began to appear in Europe. And that’s how the organic market chain Celeiro was born.
