The cooperative society Oleoestepa, a leading producer of high quality extra virgin olive oil, has participated, once again, at the fair Organic Food Iberia, held in Madrid on 7 and 8 June, now in its fourth edition.
This fair, considered one of the most important in the world for professionals in the organic sector, has brought together in IFEMA the presence of more than 350 companies and visitors from five continents.
Oleoestepa has attended with its two brands of organic EVOO: Oleoestepa Ecological and Egregio. These oils, from organic crops, early harvesting and cold extraction, ensure organoleptic characteristics of the highest quality, also covered under the Designation of Origin Estepa, seal of excellence in each of its oils.
Currently, the organic basket in Spain has a positive trend year after year, being the seventh country with more organic area (2.64M ha) worldwide, and the second country in Europe, after France. Andalusia alone accounts for 49% of the certified organic area in Spain (1.37M ha); and focusing on our sector, organic olive groves account for 9% of the total national organic area, with an annual growth of 15% (Source: MAPA, 2022).
With these data, Oleoestepa also wants to take care of consumers who demand more and more organic products, and it is estimated that in the coming years will reach a total of 3,000 ha of organic area, in all of its 19 cooperatives, always under the commitment to quality, sustainability and innovation that characterizes it.
