European Network of Cork-Producing Territories

The concept of cork goes beyond what is strictly industrial. As the Palafrugell author and journalist Josep Pla expressed, it is a civilisation, a world that includes, among many other things, an ecological system and a series of specific cultural statements.

Thanks to this initiative, we are promoting dialogue and strategic collaboration between territories which understand cork as a strategic element which needs to be defended and promoted.

Our proposal is to work so that, in a jointly agreed upon way, our network becomes consolidated and extended, to guarantee the sustainability of what has been a source of wealth for our towns for more than two centuries, in such a way that the cork-producing activity continues to be an important resource for our local development.
