In its commitment to the production of the highest quality olive oils, Dcoop has rewarded the best early harvest oils produced by its cooperatives with the “Award for best olive mill master for the 2019-2020 campaign”.
It is a recognition of the commitment and dedication of all those who produce oils at the beginning of the campaign and a way to involve, motivate and reward one of the most important links in the production chain of quality oils, the master mills.
The Unión de Úbeda (Jaén) cooperative has been recognised in the Picual variety oil category, Oleoalgaidas SCA de Villanueva de Algaidas (Málaga) in the best Arbequina variety oil category and the SCA Agropecuaria Ntra cooperative. Sra. de Los Remedios de Antequera (Málaga) in the best category of coupage and best oil of the Hojiblanca variety.
The four award-winning oils were packaged in a limited premium edition, marketed through the Dcoop cooperatives and soon also through the online shop.
Master Dcoop Project
The awards are the point of the Master Project program, born from the willingness of the cooperatives to manage quality oils anticipated with the aim of encouraging the production of this type of oil, optimize wholesale sales and have a reference point for green oil bottled by Dcoop.
With this proposal, which is in addition to others already being developed by the group in terms of specialized professional training, international quality certifications in all plants and processes, strengthening the oil laboratory, which is already the largest in the industry, among others, the goal is to position the brand Dcoop among the highest quality oils on the market.
Dcoop is the world’s largest producer of olive oil, with an average production of over 200,000 tonnes/year, representing almost 8% of the world’s average production and 15% of total Spanish production. The Dcoop Oil Section is composed of about one hundred Andalusian, La Mancha and Extremadura cooperatives. Together with its partner, Pompeian, it is the leader in sales of olive oil on the U.S. market, with 4 packaging plants, two of which are in the United States.
The oil produced by the Dcoop olive groves and olive groves is consumed in more than 70 countries around the world, making these cooperatives competitive, industrialized, innovative and committed to sustainable development.
