For Deoleo, sustainability is more than just a buzz word – it is the key to adding value to our brands, our society and our planet. To continue making quality products that delight consumers, we must work in ways that preserves the environment and support the people that make our business possible. Thinking and acting sustainably is the key to nurturing a healthier future.
Our sustainability manifesto: caring for what cares for you
Olive oil is integral to the lives of so many. Those who farm it, make it, sell it and consume it. As global stewards of this vital ingredient, we are committed to producing it responsibly. Expertly. In ways that protect livelihoods, promote good health and protect our planet.

“Olive groves should respect the environment, with trees cultivated in the most respectful way possible to support local fauna and biodiversity. In our olive groves, we implement vegetation cover, creating soil that is rich in plants, to avoid erosion, to keep the soil fertile and support wildlife.”
– Enrique Gallego, Technical Director, Cerrogordo Cooperative
“I have been working in the mills for over 30 years. I was going to be a veterinarian; however, my family has some land, so I started to take care of it and in the process learned more about olive oil, what I like most is being among the olive trees, as well as being my own boss.”
– María José Campos, Secretary of the Governing Council, Nuestra Señora de Consolación de Doña Mencía Cooperative
