PLMJ advises Refriango on its partnership with Super Bock


PLMJ advised the Refriango group on the negotiation of a joint venture with the Super Bock group. The aim of the partnership is to produce and market Super Bock and Cristal beer in Angola. This will enable the international brands to return to Angola and make a significant contribution to the growth of the Angolan economy and the development of the country.

PLMJ's team was led by Inês Pinto da Costa, a partner from the Corporate M&A practice, Célia Vieira de Freitas (senior consultant) and Rúben Brigolas ( managing associate), from the same team. They were joined by Januário Macamba among other lawyers from a multidisciplinary PLMJ Colab team.

According to Manuel Violas, chairman of the board of directors of the Super Bock Group, “We are very pleased to announce the return of the brand to Angola, a country inextricably linked to the company's internationalisation programme. Above all, this makes us happy because the Cristal and Super Bock beers are returning to serve Angolans who have always recognised the excellent quality of these two brands and the value of both in important moments of their daily lives. This partnership also marks the contribution that we will once again make to the economic and social development of the country”.

Diogo Caldas, CEO of Refriango, believes that “With this partnership, we guarantee access to international brands that suit consumers’ tastes and provide a wider choice for various occasions for consumption. We are also celebrating another bridge to Angola, another path that we want to open up for the growth of the Angolan economy and the development of the country.
