The cooperative society Oleoestepa, a leading producer of high quality extra virgin olive oil, has donated to the Archdiocese of Seville a total of 10,000 single-dose bottles of its oil, for the breakfasts of the pilgrims.

From the Archdiocese of Seville, more than 2,500 young people from all over the province will attend this meeting, and through the Parish of Santa María and San Sebastián de Estepa, Oleoestepa has provided 10,000 single-dose bottles of oil to facilitate and promote healthy eating during these days.
