Olive oil is a liquid vegetable fat that is obtained from the fruit of the olive tree. This fruit is the so-called olive

It is a fat mainly for human consumption and we can add it to most meals, stews and salads. The Mediterranean diet includes it in its list of ingredients and products, for this reason, and by numerous scientific studies, it is cataloged as a healthy food.

The use of olive oil probably dates back several thousand years, when Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans began the cultivation of olive trees and the extraction of the juice of the olive, “Olive Oil”.

Since then this oil has been a fundamental element in the trade between people of the Mediterranean Sea and to this day it is still a primary ingredient in the so-called “Healthy Mediterranean Diet”.

At present the cultivation of olive trees is spread throughout the territory of the Mediterranean Sea, with Spain being the largest exporter to countries around the world. Because Spain is the largest producer of olive oil, this product occupies an important place in the economy of this country and therefore, producers make a great effort to maintain the quality, safety and authenticity of this product, also called “Liquid Gold” in ancient Rome.

During the reign of the Roman Empire, olive oil from Hispania (Spain) was the most valued of the entire empire due to its high quality. Because of this, at that time thousands of clay vessels were sent to all the villages of the empire and especially to Rome itself.
