Likewise, these olive oils are produced according to the standards ordered by the Law in this regard, as we explained in the post “Organic Olive Oil“. These are rules relating to the cultivation of the olive tree, production, storage and distribution of the olive oil obtained.
These are rules fundamentally related to the cultivation of the olive tree and therefore aimed at obtaining an organic olive. The land, which is prepared without the use of herbicides or pesticides, is not enough to declare it as organic farming. In addition, other practices and techniques must be carried out that maintain and improve soil fertility. As well as ensuring that the fruit is in a healthy state and with all its properties when it reaches the oil mill.
Organic and traditional olive oil
Once the organic olive is harvested, the rest of the processes (production, storage, packaging and distribution) compared to the production of a traditional premium EVOO are quite similar. Finally, it is in the labeling where it will be certified with the distinctive seal of the product from organic farming.
The price of organic olive oil is higher than that of a traditionally produced olive oil. Obviously, this is due to applying all the measures and processes necessary to produce this type of olive oil. However, a sustainable environmental future requires this type of organic production. And as this is generalized, the price will be reduced.
What’s more, most of these juices comply with the standards of the Priego de Córdoba PDO and the Baena PDO, two of the most emblematic Protected Designations of Origin in the Spanish olive oil sector. Ensuring even more the quality of these olive oils.
