grocery store in Lisbon

Based on social, ecological and collaborative values

Ri - Zo - Ma

In botany, a type of stem that grows horizontally is called a rhizome (in portuguese, "rizoma").

As a cooperative, we too, aspire to grow horizontally in an organic and democratic fashion.

Like the rhizome, we want our community to become a support network, by offering basic consumer goods in an economically, ecologically, and socially responsible way.

What we offer

Support local producers

We aim to work directly with local, smaller scale producers.


Everything about our products is public: producer, caracteristics, margin, etc.

Affordable prices

Since each member contributes to the coop, we are able to cut costs and offer high-quality products at a reasonable price


We are a group of active citizens from various horizons, who care about investing in our neighborhood.

Less packaging

We avoid packaging as much as possible. Most of our products are available in bulk.


Find out where your food comes from and how it is produced. Learn how to participate in a horizontal citizen organization.

How to become a member?


Contribute a minimum of 15 € to the coopertive's share capital.


Commit to work 3 hours on the project per month.
