Suropédia is born, a website able to answer any question about cork

The Catalan Institute of Cork Foundation presents The Suropedia, an informative website of international ambition that it wants to be a living tool, free and available to everyone who has concerns about the world of cork and look for a platform to solve them. Its contents have not only been validated by the technicians of the ICSuro Foundation, but also by the forestry, industrial, design and tourism sectors.

The home page of the Suropédia segments the public based on their interests and the user can choose three paths: "I'm a winery", "I'm passionate about wine" and "I'm interested in cork as a material". The contents are structured in the format of more than seventy questions and answers according to the theme: cork, the cork oak, the cork stopper, curiosities, cork activities and publications. For example, it resolves questions such as "how many years does a cork oak live?", "is there a fair specialized in cork?" or "did you know that cork is one of the most important materials in a spaceship?".

The goal of the Institut Català del Suro Foundation with the creation of this new website is to share its knowledge about the cork sector in accordance with its vocation to promote dissemination actions that allow to expand knowledge and grow the Catalan cork sector .

By the director of ICSuro, Albert Hereu, "the Suropédia must be a very useful tool for all those who want to know the sector and the material as well as for those companies that have seen cork as a business opportunity or an ally to better sell their wines".

The Suropédia can be a useful tool for entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs, students, journalists or curious people who have unresolved questions about the cork sector and don't know where to turn. This new tool can be consulted in Catalan, Spanish and English.
