As a natural source of vitamin E, olives have been at the forefront of the European gastronomic tradition and culture. The history of southern Europe is bathed in olive fields, a tree closely linked to the Mediterranean food.
European growers offer American consumers recipes with this millenary ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. There is a long history and tradition of producing olives in Europe, in many different varieties including Manzanilla, Hojiblanca and Queen. Olives are in the heart of health, culture and gastronomy.
With Europe being the world leader in producing and exporting table olives, Olives from Spain believes that this demonstrates their popularity and ability to adapt to the demands of consumers; with the majority of olives consumed in the USA and more than 83 % being imported from Mediterranean countries.
