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.
