Made in Spain olive oil is much more than an ingredient, it is a fundamental part of Spanish culture and culinary tradition. Its diversity, quality and unique flavor make it a gastronomic jewel that is appreciated throughout the world.
The olive culture and tradition in Spain has a richness and depth that dates back centuries defining the identity of many regions and communities throughout the country. The olive tree is an emblematic tree that has left an indelible mark on the history, gastronomy and daily life of the Spanish people.
The production of olive oil is an art that has been passed down from generation to generation. Master millers have perfected their techniques over the years achieving high quality oils that are appreciated both nationally and internationally.
Spanish olive oil, known as “liquid gold”, is a gem of gastronomy that has conquered the palates of millions of people around the planet. Spain is the largest producer of olive oil in the world, and this title is not only an achievement in terms of quantity but also quality.
Spain is a world leader in surface area, production and foreign trade thanks to the olive-growing tradition of our country and a technologically advanced and professional industry capable of obtaining high-quality olive oils. Spanish olive oil production accounts for 70% of EU production and 45% of world production.
Spanish olive oil stands out for its quality and diversity thanks to the great variety of climates, microclimates and quality terrain that characterize Spain. More than 200 varieties of olives are grown in our country, each of them providing a texture, unique aroma and flavor, which allow different combinations to obtain higher quality oils and offer greater culinary versatility.
Another important factor that guarantees the excellence of Spanish olive oil is the application of strict quality control standards at each stage of the product process: from the sourcing of olives to the harvesting, pressing, blending, bottling and distribution of the final product.
In addition, the “made in Spain” oil is characterized by its low acidity and its high content of polyphenols, antioxidants and monounsaturated fatty acids, which makes it a superfood with numerous health benefits, such as heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory, digestive and helps combat oxidative stress.
