About RetuRO

RetuRO is a company established by a consortium of three private shareholders and one public shareholder and appointed by law as administrator of the Deposit-Return System.
The company was formed as a dually managed company, based on the not-for-profit principle, which means that it has undertaken in its articles of association to reinvest any profits exclusively in the development of the system.

RetuRO’s shareholding

RetuRO Sistem Garanție Returnare S.A. was established, according to the legislation in force, by the representative associations of beverage producers and retailers to manage the deposit-refund system implemented in Romania. Subsequently, the company adopted the Romanian State as a shareholder.
