"Var cork represents less than 0.01% of our production” explains Pascal Popelier, Commercial Director at Diam. “But we are French, and this is an industry and a remarkable profession that is being forgotten.

It is a raw material that can reinvigorate the economy, local outlets that can reinvigorate the economy and innovative technology that can reinvigorate the economy. Everybody wins ..." he added.
"And it's a real sustainable development project” adds Pierre Alex Agné. “We are revitalising a job-creating industry and tomorrow’s winemakers will be able to purchase their closures locally. What could be better for a vineyard in Provence than purchasing cork from Provence? "
