Respecting Local Economies

Catavino takes great pride in our effort to support local Spanish and Portuguese communities with every Euro we spend. We are fully conscious that small family-run businesses are vanishing in lieu of corporate chains and that it is our responsibility to rally against the tide to keep the authenticity and community feel alive.

In our office (theLAB)

  • Purchasing sustainable and locally produced goods and services whenever possible rather than imported products.
  • Ensuring that fair employment practices are in place (and uses suppliers who have similar employment practices), while paying relevant taxes.
  • Supporting the community with locally sourced wine for tastings, artists for gallery events, and products for sale.

On our tours

  • Using local agents, suppliers and guides who contribute full time to the local economies throughout Portugal and Spain.
  • Visiting places ‘off the beaten tourist trails’, thus spreading economic benefits across the country.
  • Providing each of our suppliers with our Supplier Code of Conduct to influence our supply chain to operate in a more sustainable way.

In the destinations, we visit

  • Encouraging our travelers to purchase from local suppliers and use local service providers, as well as supporting social enterprises, local trade, arts, and crafts.
  • Contributing financial assistance to local operators and to local charities.
