INNOLIVA has more than 3,200 hectares of olive groves in the Portuguese country
Madrid, June 14, 2017.
Portugal was the first to move the chip looking at the next season. The Portuguese country has wanted to make room in the world market before other producers launch their products and cause new changes in prices. Thus, Portuguese operators are offering extra virgin olive oil (AOVE) at prices ranging from € 3.40 to € 3.50.
Since entering the European Union, Portugal has wanted to bet strongly for agricultural modernization, achieving, among other things, that its olive grove has gained a significant weight in recent years. At present, the Portuguese olive farms cover some 345,000 ha and represent 1.36% of the total value of agricultural production.
INNOLIVA has four cultivation units located in Portugal: Olivares de Carmo (727 hectares), Olivares de Fatima (842 ha), Olivares de Covadonga (1210 ha) and Olivares de Conceiçao (494 ha). This amounts to around 6 million olive trees that, thanks to the care and climate they enjoy in these plantations, offer an EVOO with excellent health and sensory qualities.
The company, which has its head office in Pamplona (Spain), owns more than 5,000 hectares of irrigated olive groves, located in Spain and Portugal, where the Mediterranean climate gives the olive tree the ideal environment for the development and maturation of the fruit; and it favors the obtaining of Extra Virgin Olive Oils with excellent sensory qualities.
With its production system, they guarantee the integral traceability of the entire process: from the olive tree to the final customer.
They make their Extra Virgin Olive Oil cold in the shortest time possible from the entrance of the olive in the oil mill. And they take care of the oil already produced to maintain their excellent sensory and healthy qualities as long as possible.
