Who is behind the Almazaras de la Subbética?
It is an agricultural cooperative, created in July 2007, but born from the merger of two prestigious Spanish cooperatives with over 60 years of experience in the olive oil industry.
The cooperative is located in the Sierre Subbéticas Natural Park, a protected cultivation area declared of environmental interest. The headquarters is in Carcabuey (Córdoba), located in the center of the Cordoba-Jaen-Malaga-Granada quadrilateral, the heart of Spanish olive growing.
At Almazaras de la Subbética, they have been betting from the beginning on the quality of their products, in full respect of each individual producer, customer satisfaction, care for the environment, and active collaboration with the most disadvantaged sectors of society. Worthy of mention is the initiative "Botellas con Alma", with which the cooperative donates to the Asociaciones Sonrisas Sin Cáncer and UnoEntreCienMil, 2 euros for each bottle sold.
A long trail of success that makes - in fact - the Almazaras de la Subbética the most awarded company in the EVO IOOC Italy contest, and among the most awarded in the world.
