Our company is specialised in the production and sale of food packaging, containers for food preservation and cooking, products for home storage, and the management of domestic waste. Always mindful of qualitative excellence, innovation and sustainability, Cuki Cofresco serves both the mass-consumer market and the professional market with in excess of 4,000 products.

Our Story

Conservation is a crucial part of the food industry production cycle; for over sixty years now, Cuki has been investing substantially in this particular sector, in terms of technological research, an integrated industrial system, and rational production diversification, in line with the specific demands of the market.

The markets in which the company operates primarily concern various types of food wrapping and containers, yet over the years have expanded to include bin liners made from recycled, recyclable or plant-based materials under the Domopak Spazzy brand, in addition to products for the care and organisation of the spaces in our homes under the Domopak Living brand.
