Businessman Rui Nabeiro, founder of Grupo Nabeiro – Delta Cafés, died this Sunday at the age of 91, a victim of illness, at Hospital da Luz, in Lisbon, a source for the group told Lusa.
“It is with deep regret that the Nabeiro family informs that, today, March 19, Commander Manuel Rui Azinhais Nabeiro, president and founder of the Nabeiro Group — Delta Cafés”, can be read in a statement sent by the group.
