San Isidro Labrador posi­tions Interóleo to gain strength in the national mar­ket, where the com­pany has already shown impres­sive per­for­mance.

Interóleo’s exports have increased to over 15 mil­lion kilos of olive oil, a 22 per­cent jump in the last two years. They rep­re­sented 1.36 per­cent of olive oil exported from Spain dur­ing the last sea­son, with exports reach­ing coun­tries such as the United States, France, Italy, Portugal, and Poland.

Based in the world’s top olive oil-pro­duc­ing region of Jaén, Interóleo has two main objec­tives. The first, to be a cen­tral point of sales for olive oil pro­duced by its mem­bers, and sec­ond, to serve as a cen­tral buy­ing point in order to opti­mize costs.

We con­tinue to gain momen­tum on this path which we’ve set out on,” said Juan Gadeo, pres­i­dent of Interóleo, which is to focus on guar­an­tee­ing good prices for oil, which are enabled by pro­fes­sional, trans­par­ent and bold deci­sions that demand lit­tle risk.”

The pres­i­dent of SCA San Isidro Labrador, Juan Francisco Moreno, affirmed the deci­sion: There was no doubt about the neces­sity to enter a group such as Interóleo. All of the mem­bers were in agree­ment about (Interóleo’s) pro­fes­sion­al­ism and trans­parency, which allows us to con­tinue as own­ers of our oil and with min­i­mal risk.”

SCA San Isidro Labrador joined two other recent Andalusian addi­tions to Interóleo; Nuestra Señora del Rosario and Agroindustrial Domingo Sánchez.
