About Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
50% of all the world’s Olive Oil is produced in Spain. This means one out of every two bottles of olive oil contains Olive Oil from Spain. Spain boasts more than 340 million olive trees and has the largest man-made forest in the world, making it the industry leader worldwide. The olive-tree plantation in Jaen alone contains a staggering 64 million trees spread over half a million hectares, making Jaen the biggest producer of olive oil in the world by far.
Around 78% of the agricultural land in the area is reserved for olive trees, with picual trees the most commonly grown.
Spain is also the global leader in organic extra virgin olive oil production, exporting almost 70% of its production each year, which is sold in over 172 countries around the world.
Spain grows more than 260 varieties of olives, enabling Spanish olive oil to have the widest array of flavours and distinctly different aromas. This is good for both the consumer and the planet, promoting biodiversity and ensuring that within the wide variety of Spanish olive oil consumers can find one that is a fit for their specific taste.
