The fork is only the beginning

We combine waste and natural resources with modern technological know-how to create new innovative materials and products to replace single-use plastic in everyday situations.

Our story

It all started with the idea to replace plastic in everyday products with more sustainable material. Drawing from previous experience with manufacturing, our founder Josef and his team spent several years looking for a solution. In 2018, they discovered how to bind wood flour to natural substances.

Ta-da! That is how our iconic fork was born. As time has passed, we have grown, and in 2019, we founded Refork. Our workshop evolved into a state-of-the-art factory in Prague. We honed our material, thus enhancing our product and manufacturing line. As a result, the fork evolved into a cutlery set. In November 2021, we opened a new factory to scale our production. We take pride in it being local and in-house. The fork was just the beginning....
