Currently, it is made up of more than 5,500 farmers with over 54,000 hectares of olive groves. More than seven million olive trees are carefully cultivated to maintain sustainable farming.

Social commitment. Because of the economic, social and cultural importance that the olive sector has within our region, Oleoestepa is constantly looking to develop and grow its social responsibility to the community.
At Oleoestepa generation after generation has worked alongside nature to obtain the best. This has given way to the conservation of a forest of more than 7 million trees.
The basis of this sustainability is integrated production and organic farming methods. Both systems base themselves on a combination of farming techniques and production techniques that are mindful of the environment and at the same time achieve high quality products. This is done with a food safety guarantee and without sacrificing the full production capacity. Reasonable use of natural resources is observed, especially water, in order to avoid erosion.
