History

A small family business, based on producing cork stoppers, founded in 1870, in Vila Nova de Gaia, has evolved into the world's largest cork products company and Portugal’s most international company, the clear sector leader in 2020. Over the past 150 years, the world has changed, and the Group has experienced an evolution that few would have imagined to be possible.

From the very beginning, and throughout our entire 150-year history, we have always upheld certain values: above all our entrepreneurial spirit, vision and audacity. We are pioneers, we open new paths, we work hard. We bring together different fields of knowledge and desires.

Over the past 150 years we have made countless friends, and unconditional enthusiasts who form an integral part of cork's global and ongoing renaissance.
