Angoalissar established its first food print in Luanda, in 1992 offering our customer healthier and high quality product at affordable price. In 1995, we opened our first branch in Namibe, and in the following years, we expanded to Huambo in 2000, to Cabinda in 2004, to Zaire (soyo), Bié (Kuito) and Kwanza Sul (Sumbe) in 2010, and to Uige in 2011.
Today, we are a leader in soft commodities and fast-moving consumer goods as well as the number 1 importer of food, operating in 12 provinces and employing more than 2200 people across all operations, with over 94% being local talents. In 2014, Amigo Academy was created in order to provide specific training to all those who work with us.
Our success is based on the relationships we have been building with the trade, suppliers, stakeholders and consumers for over two decades.

We are extremely flexible in adapting to new and quick changing environments. We are always looking ahead to implement innovative, flexible and cost-effective solutions to meet market needs.
We embrace our family spirit. A spirit that is geared by courage, ethics and integrity. A spirit that shines, and we shine with it.
We strive to always be pioneers, never failing to push ourselves one step further. We are trendsetters in the emerging markets we operate in.
We value our human capital. We find imperative to build the capabilities of our people and foster entrepreneurship.
Angoalissar is totally committed to understanding and meeting the quality needs and expectations of its customers. We are proud of our high quality products because we strive at the continuous improvement and upgrading of our comprehensive quality assurance and safety system.
Our quality management system tackles all aspects of quality from the stage the product is developed till the stage it’s launched into the market. We make sure our product’s identity is well defined through the proper setting of finished product technical specifications and the appropriate selection of our suppliers with whom we work hard for establishing our high quality standards.
Product quality is further verified by the conduct of quality control and safety tests upon product reception and storage. Our newly installed laboratory is well equipped to handle physical, chemical and microbiological tests and to make sure organoleptic quality of our products meets customers’ preferences.
Because we believe that quality is the key to success, we strive at achieving high quality standards throughout our business processes.
