After 7 generations of olive-growing tradition and 5 of milling tradition, in the LUQUE family we have reached Organic Farming in olive groves and careful preparation of our organic extra virgin olive oil as maximum expression of food quality concept and respect for the environment.
So we can say that in these centuries of our profesional activity as farmers and millers, our ancestors have transmitted us culture, tradition and secrets of true olive oil.
On our side, new generation has tried to combine traditional way of caring for olive groves, much more respectful with the environment, with new technologies to obtain an EVOO of the highest quality, sustainable and covered by the most exigent international quality and food safety certifications.
