PICUALIA

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Picualia was created by the merging of the AGRÍCOLA DE BAILÉN and VIRGEN DE ZOCUECA food and agriculture cooperatives in 2009.

MISSION

To produce and market health-giving virgin and extra virgin olive oils sustainably in a way that’s respectful of the environment, makinghigh-quality olive oils to satisfy even the most demanding palates.

VISION

To set the standard for producing and marketing high-quality extra virgin olive oils and to offer first-class oleotourism experiences in our modern facilities.

In the heart of Andalusia’s Jaén province, next to the A-4 motorway that connects the main urban centres of southern Spain (Cádiz, Seville and Cordoba) to Madrid, sits Picualia.
The merger between the Agrícola de Bailén and Virgen de Zocueca food and agriculture cooperatives resulted in Picualia, an influential and modern oil mill notable for its harvesting of the Picual olive. Of the 2,600 types of olive found around the world, this variety has the highest levels of antioxidants and provides the most health benefits.

Since the first olive oil cooperatives began to form 70 years ago, the farmers in our town, Bailén, who created them were convinced that an eventual merger would unite them and allow them to open new facilities that were much more productive, offering high-quality olive oil that could be traced precisely, removing all chemical processes and guaranteeing the excellent quality of the virgin and extra virgin olive oils marketed by Picualia today.

In 2011, Picualia began to receive awards and recognition of the quality of its oils, and an investment cycle began that allowed for the production of high-quality EVOO. To date, that investment totals 12.8 million euros and has resulted in one of the world’s most modern oil mills.

In 2016, the Picualia oil mill received several national and international awards, including the prize for Best Spanish Olive Mill 2015-2016 awarded by the Asociación Española de Municipios del Olivo (Spanish Association of Olive-Producing Municipalities, AEMO). This has inspired us to continue to respect PICUALIA’s basic tenets: Passion, tradition, dedication and leadership.
