cristina Silva ferreira

Visionary and Owner of the CorkMarketPlace

Cork is my legacy. It runs in my family for more than 150 years.

After 25 years of professional dedication to local and regional planning and sustainable development in public administration as a Geographer, life brought me this new challenge that I love and that keeps me learning all the time.

It´s all about people living around this unique raw material, a natural resource, with an amazing range of uses.

Reinventing the social and economic cork approach in the XXI Century, adding value to cork, making partnerships and building new bridges between players to bring a traditional activity to  knowledge and into the digital era is my call to action. I´m exploring a new world and sharing it with passion at this new meeting point.
