The legacy of Gastão started in 1955 when a dark haired, brown eyed boy was born in Cape Town to Portuguese immigrants. Gastão Bartholomew de Nobrega was raised in the hospitality trade, where he developed a love for good food and people.

Gastão met his future wife Thereza in 1963 at a wedding when he was only seven and she four! In the middle 1980’s they moved from the Mother City to the coastal town of Mossel Bay.

After working as the manager at food companies, he identified a gap in the food distribution industry. September 1999 marked the opening of Gastão’s Quality Foods, a company Gastão and Thereza started together.
