Initially established in 1926, Cortas today is regarded as one of the leading canning and refrigerating companies in the region, with a wide range of canned, jammed and refrigerated food products.
After numerous challenges the company was faced with since its inception such as the Lebanese civil war in 1965 and an explosion in a gas reservoir that was nearby in 1989 which destroyed the factory, Cortas being determined to bring the finest quality Lebanese gourmet products to every corner of the world, was able to not only recover but also expand its production line and worldwide distribution network that today spans across 20 countries.
In 2017, Fondation Diane invested in Cortas. This investment would partially help contribute to introducing renewable energy sources at the factory, the use o bio-degradable materials in the packaging of the products, composting and create a new organic line of products.
