Cefours affärsidé är att producera, sälja och distribuera vin som tappats på attraktiva, praktiska och drickfärdiga engångsglas av återvinningsbar plast. Sedan produktionsstarten 2010 har Cefour utvecklat en avancerad och unik produktionsteknik, där företaget äger hela processen i tillverkningen. Detta innebär att vi själva köper in viner och råmaterial för tillverkning av produkterna – och helt i egen regi – framställer hela förpackningen samt tappar och försluter glasen.
