For António Almeida Cortiças, everything begins in the forest. Extensive knowledge of the reality of the forests as a result of decades of direct and permanent contact with the cork oak forests enables the company to control the entire production process, from the forest to the final finishing of cork stoppers. Hence, António Almeida Cortiças integrates the entire value chain in the business unit.
Its production facilities are supplied with technologically advanced equipment allowing the production of high mechanical and organoleptic performance corks.
In the different production areas, the Company is supported by a strong team of technicians and employees with a sense of responsibility and mission.
In recent years, as a result of substantial investment in R&D and more efficient research processes, we implemented new productive solutions such as:
- Innovative boiling and sterilisation system of cork planks,
- System for the disinfection of granulates – AdvanTECH
- Disc Disinfection – DEO
