COSFIL: A Project Beginning in 1988, a Success Story


Our plans are defined by the establishment of business targets compatible with the company’s sustained development which have alway followed the modernization and focused the continuous growing quality.

The preservation of environmental and cultural resources and the respect for diversity are also some of our concerns which have always been with us throughout our growth.

The performance of a company such as Cosfil goes much beyond the financial results as these are only reachable through a responsible policy based on the experience and continuous study regarding new techniques and the development of new products.

Today, Cosfil is an exporting company. It is a challenge we embrace with enthusiasm and responsibility. The internationalization is offering a new direction not only to our company but also to our domestic economy.

The balance between the progress and nature

Social Responsibility

During many years Mother Nature, farming and its linked traditions have been despised in Portugal.

During many years Mother Nature, farming and its linked traditions have been despised in Portugal.

From 2004 on COSFIL has taken the initiative to revive these 3 identity pilars.


The company therefore has a farm next to its facilities where projects in the fruit and small animal fields have been developed. This has allowed to recover green spaces (a total of 20.000m2), develop traditional fruits and provide its cooperators and relatives a healthy relationship during their free time. The farming art being born from them can allow them enjoyable moments among everyone.
