The new site is located near Midsid's warehouse in Alcochete, less than half an hour from Lisbon, and forms part of the company's plan to expand its food and beverage distribution business in Portugal, it said.
The new facility offers a wife variety of products, including tobacco, cigars, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, confectionery, and food products. It is open to both commercial and individual customers and claims to offer more affordable prices than other wholesale outlets.
