Certificado de Calidad Aceite de Oliva de Andalucía


Extra Virgin Olive Oil

There is no other place in the world where more olive trees grow. The Andalusian landscape is essentially made up of olive groves, with more than 1.5 million hectares. 

The olive grove not only defines our landscape, but our poetry, customs, gastronomy and lifestyles run parallel to the life cycle of this tree that has accompanied us in Andalusia for millennia.


The different cultures and civilizations that populated Andalusia (Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians and Carthaginians) discovered the benefits of olive oil and planted olive groves that have survived to the present day.

The olive grove in Andalusia is also a source of wealth.

This sector is the best antidote to the abandonment of rural areas and some 250,000 families in more than 300 municipalities depend on it, accounting for 40% of agricultural employment. It is a crop that helps to fix the population in the territory and to avoid the exodus to the big cities. 

The Andalusian olive grove stands out as one of the richest ecosystems in the Iberian Peninsula, an immense humanized forest and an indisputable oxygen lung. The exploitation and conservation of the olive grove is of enormous importance to reduceCO2 emissions into the atmosphere, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.


After years of research and implementation of the most efficient agricultural techniques, today's olive growing pursues the environmental sustainability of olive production, proving to be an effective weapon to significantly reduce erosion and soil degradation, as well as to stop the loss of biodiversity (birds, ants and herbaceous plants) detected in the olive groves as a whole.

There are many actions that can have a decisive impact now and in the future, such as the use of residues (stone, olive pomace, leaf and olive prunings) as a source of biomass, a 100% renewable, safe and clean energy alternative through biomass gasification technology, reducing the carbon footprint of the olive oil value chain.

All these measures, together with the agri-environmental commitment of olive growers, have an enormous impact on the conservation of the entire natural environment and are aligned with the agricultural policies pursued by the European Union for 2030.

Elaboration Techniques

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In the mill, the olives are milled (milled) within a maximum of 48 hours, to ensure that all the quality of the olives is maintained in the olive tree.
This is the place where it will remain until it is marketed at a temperature between 15º and 18º, which allows the oils to mature without favoring oxidation. The conditions in which the oil remains in the cellar are important for the quality to remain intact.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the basis of Andalusian gastronomy. In the region with the highest production in the world (ahead of Italy, Greece or Portugal), olive oil is the star ingredient in most of the recipes. 

The essence of the olive, the "liquid gold", is enhanced by using it in its raw state, in which it maintains all its organoleptic properties intact. 

Endless uses

It consists of leaving the food for a while in a mixture of olive oil, vinegar, onion, garlic and spices.
For salads or raw recipes.
Food is cooked at high temperatures coated with olive oil. Generally meats.
The food is cooked slowly and for a long time, at low temperature.
Keeping food in olive oil is useful to prolong the life cycle of the food.
It is a technique used to combine two liquids that do not normally combine easily to create a new element with a different texture.
It is highly recommended for frying, since it withstands without decomposition up to 190ºC, the temperature reached during frying.
Seasoning a food over low heat.
You can cook and brown in a short time with a small amount of olive oil. It does not detract from the flavor of the food.


Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In changing scenarios, we cannot stop innovating. Building differentiating arguments allows us to achieve better oils, from an organoleptic and healthy point of view, without losing sight of environmental sustainability.
