Cork oak implantation in the world Algeria comes third after Portugal and Spain.
Throughout our presence in the market, we have been able to set up a data bank showing the historic evolvement of the raw material quality. The systematic analysis of these data is of great help to the work carried out by a large team of technicians involved in the purchase of cork.
When the harvest period is over, cork planks are transported to our production unit where they must remain for a period of six months before being processed.
Once the raw cork planks are stored and dried, there is a fundamental phase which consists in their boiling. It is during said phase that cork has to be cleaned, purified and cleared of any contamination from TCA.
