Olive oils from Spain, a commitment to the future

Spain is the largest producer and exporter of Olive Oil in the world with more than 340 million olive trees, which cover an area of ​​some 2.5 million hectares, the source of half the Olive Oil in the world. Spain currently exports these Olive Oils to more than 160 countries.

In Spain, more than 260 varieties of olive are grown that are scattered throughout the country, which is the greatest olive variety worldwide. We also have 29 protected Designations of Origin and about 170,000 hectares of ecological olive grove, the largest in the world.

Olive Oils from Spain hold a vast wealth of heritage, and great social, environmental, cultural and economic value to the country, as it underpins the economy of thousands of people throughout Spain. For this reason, Olive Oils deserve our utmost recognition, protection and care.
