COVID-19 Update

Everyone at CuanTec extends their best wishes to you and your family and hope that you all remain in good health.

Firstly, we would like to say a massive thank you to all frontline workers who continue to deliver health care and essential services during these difficult times. Your efforts are vital in our fight against this virus and we appreciate all that you do for us.

We closed our laboratory on March 18th to allow our scientists to safely work from home, following the government advice to allow employees to practice social distancing. Since then many other companies supporting us have decided to also restrict or temporarily suspend work.

After a lot of thought and consideration, CuanTec decided that the most effective way we can support the UK effort to combat the spread of the COVID19 virus is by temporarily closing down our non-essential working. This is especially important to us due to our rural location and the sensitivity of local health care provision. We hope that you appreciate the difficult decision we have made, and that by doing so, CuanTec’s employees will soon be able to return to work in full fitness to drive forward our ambitious plans.

If you require urgent attention please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

It may take up to 5 working days to respond, but we are sure you will understand in the present circumstances.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported CuanTec on our journey so far. We are excited about coming back when it is deemed safe and continuing our mission to replace plastic food packaging and reduce food waste.

 We’ll be back soon. Take care and stay safe by staying at home.
