Presentation

In the words of our president

I’m taking the presidency of this great project, Manzanilla Olive, in which many farmers have put their trust, and where great levels of work, effort, excitement and determination have been achieved to raise our voices and be Heard in the agrofood business.

I’m so proud of it; it’s a great achievement to represent my neighbours, farmers and workers of Andalusian lands, who work day by day from dawn till sunset to get the best crops and offer the best products to the world, because they love what they do and they commit.

I’ve always had a bond with the agricultural world, be aware of everything involved in table olives, olive oil and cereal sectors, their people, their problems, their progress, etc. It allows me to provide my expertise, proximity and enthusiasm for innovation and improvement.

With this new stage as the President, I’ll continue with the great job done by my antecessor and I’ll work restlessly so that Manzanilla Olive group continues to be a reference in Andalusian, Spanish and global agrifood business.

Manzanilla Olive:
6,000 reasons to trust us

We collect the olives from the groves; we bring them to our premises, and prepare them with devotion so they become the stronghold of the Mediterranean diet. Through collaboration and cooperative work, we are a part of each step in this process. After this, we let them go so that millions of people can enjoy the taste of our land, the olive we have worked and cared for. This is our tradition. It is our passion.

We are a family of tradition. A family with 6,000 members that dedicate their lives to ensure that the olives from Seville are of the best quality.

We have grown together with the olives of our land, feeling the years passing in every root, every branch, and every knot in the bark. We have grown and lived walking the land that our ancestors cultivated, witnessing the olive picking [verdeo] each autumn, the pruning in the winter, the ploughing when spring arrives and the irrigation during the summer

Did you know that…?

Spain is the country where more olives are cultivated and that Turkey is the main consuming country?

Did you know that…?

Manzanilla Olive, even though we are young, is at the top of the six first olive producers in Spain?

Did you know that…?

The production of Manzanilla Olive supposes the farming of more than 10,000 hectares of the table olive?
