A name linked to Christopher Columbus
The name, La Española, emerges in 1840 and inspired by the former Spanish colony La Española - now Haiti and Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean sea - which was founded by Christopher Columbus. His son, Hernando Columbus, began olive oil production in the 16th Century at the Hacienda Guzman in Seville and exported it to America.
The Guzman factory became the largest olive oil factory of that time in Spain and the world, and it is still owned by La Española Olive Oil company. Methods of production are not only traditional and from natural, historical sources but also innovative with the widest range of olive oils available in the market.
Andalucía, the olive tree garden of the world
As a result of a stable, thousand-year-old tradition, located basically in Andalucía, Spain is today the major producer and exporter of olive oil in the world with more than the 60% of the global production.
Andalucía, where La Española Olive Oil company is based, produces three quarters of the Spanish olives production. To be precise, just the Andalusian province of Jaén generates more than Greece.
