Being a Black Iberian Pork producer, with a high focus on exports, Miguel & Miguel approached the chamber due to their reputation and expertise, for the search of potential customers on the Dutch Market. The team, led by Mr. Wetzels, aligned very well with our business goals and provided our company with a Market Analysis of the Industry trends as well as important testimonials from Key Players. This has helped us to put in place a stronger and more focused strategy on our approach for this specific market. Their effort and commitment is evident from the great work they do!
Totalprotex sells workwear and PPE all over Europe. After deciding that we wanted to start local sales support in Portugal for the Portuguese market we contacted CCPH. The Chamber helped us to get our proposition published, managed contacts and handled local questions. CCPH provides services and handle tasks like getting financial reports, provide background information and smoothen the acquisition/relationship process.
We’re looking forward to continue to work with CCPH!
My company Portipraia Lda produces and sells chocolates. They are called “Chocolates of Life” and are certified organic and vegan. However, we felt ready to expand to other markets and contacted the Dutch Portuguese Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber helped us managing contacts in the Netherlands and created a relationship of excellence. The working method was done in full transparency which was very good because I was able to follow the whole process.
I would like to thank all the work done by Mrs Florbela Cruz and Mr Robin Wetzels, who have been a real help! I’m confident to continue working with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in the future.
The added value of membership of the Chamber started briefly after my arrival in Portugal 2,5 years ago. Having access to a vast network of experts in different fields. Via the contacts in the Chamber I got in touch with areas I needed at that time.
For example: a real estate agency, investors in hotels, project developers in Algarve, discussing a joint promotional activity with a FMCG company, access to other business networks.
It is a continuous source of inspiration: you exchange expertise, information and knowledge: giving and taking. If you are active it can really benefit your business!
“Our company SAPEC makes use of the expertise of the Chamber to find investment leads for a big Port infrastructure project near Lisbon, called Blue Atlantic. The collaboration has been very pleasant. With a cooperative and proactive spirit contacts have been promoted with the right feeling for leads that could be potentially interested in the project. For one of our projects a very good solution has been identified. It goes without saying that SAPEC will keep seeking the advice of the Chamber to promote the projects we have in hands.”
"What an experience to go to college, meet entrepreneurs and the public sector of Lisbon and the municipality of Barreiro, help a museum and have lunch with the Dutch Ambassador at his residence. I came back motivated and full of ideas. The Chamber made it an unforgettable experience with their network and connections in all different segments. Thank you Dutch Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and TIAS Business School for these enriching moments".

We have a company in Portugal, specialized in smart ambience control via air conditioners and films/película on windows. Our unique selling points are short and long term operational lease and fast delivery out of our fleet of machines. In North Western Europe digital contacts and information are the basis to start up contacts for business. Here in Portugal one depends on the face to face relation for any kind of business. In order to realize this social-business-network the Chamber is the best spider and they are controlling the web very well.
For me their Liaison Officer for the South, Mr. Frans Spijker, was and is of great help by introducing my company in the Algarve, in the South of Portugal. We did realize orders and some quotations are still in the pipeline.
For business purposes and without face to face contact you are nothing in Portugal. One has to make full use of the web like an entity as the “Câmara de Comércio Portugal Holanda”.
TIAS international business study trip means experiencing Lisbon as if living a full life in one week. Amazing and insightful. Well managed by Marjon and the Chamber of Commerce team.
"Along 2014 the Chamber supported a leading Dutch corporate company in the manufacturing industry to verify the possibility of setting up a factory in Portugal. Possible locations, subsidies and employment opportunities were analysed and local visits took place.
We received the following reference:
