5th-Generation FarmFactory Europe Awarded
The fifth-generation company, which sources olives from Catalonia and Andalusia, earned the awards for its Mikel's Fruit brand, an organic medium Hojiblanca, and Bio Green, an organic medium Hojiblanca.
"I am very happy to get this award," said Jordi Giro Marques, the company's chief executive. "For us, it is very special because we are working hard to produce good olive oil."
In the 2021/22 crop year, the company produced 200,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods.
"This harvest was very good," Marques said. "The rainfall was short, but finally the olive oil obtained from the olives was amazing."
