Quality means doing it right when no one is looking

Each day, companies and individuals carve new uses for cork material. To meet customers’ highest expectations with such diverse cork applications, our R&D department continually invests in new solutions for cork transformation, production innovation, and product development.


For this reason at PORTUGALIACORK we have implemented rigorous Quality Control System through every step of the production line. It allows us to have full control over the production result and achieve the best outcome.
