Investing in olive trees and olive oil mills in Spain

Currently in Spain there are aproximately 1,756 olive mills in operation and the extension of the olive tree is 2.55 million hectares destined to the production of olive oil, with 283 million olive trees in production, being the country with the largest surface area of olive trees worlwide.

Olive oil classifications in Spain follow the European regulations, the agriculture chapter is under the competence of the European Commission and as such regulates agriculture in the whole EU territory. According to these European regulations, olive oil is classified into three categories from the highest to the lowest quality for its commercialisation: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Virgin Olive Oil and Lampante Olive Oil.

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Early Harvesting / Late Harvesting)
  • Virgin olive oils
  • Lampante olive oils
Extra virgin olive oil or AOVE (Olive Oil)

EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). This is the highest quality type of olive oil. It is sold to the final consumer.

To be considered extra, it must meet two conditions:

  • Of chemical character, percentage of acidity that must be less or equal to 0, 8º.
  • Of organoleptic character, that is to say, of impeccable flavour and aroma, it is checked by tasting, the tasting panel is formed by between seven and twelve tasters, where the median of the defect must be zero, and the median of the fruity attribute must be greater than zero. "Median defect equal to zero" means that the majority of tasters on the panel do not detect any defect and "Median fruitiness greater than zero" means that the majority of tasters on the panel detect that the oil is fruity.

*Premium EVOO or early harvest. The early harvest of the olive starts in mid-October in the countryside and lasts until mid-November in the mountains, where the fruit ripens more slowly due to the cold. At that time, the olive's maturity index has not yet reached its peak and, on the outside, it is still green. The resulting oil is known as early harvest or premium. It has an intense green colour, deep and fruity nuances, more polyphenols and a higher percentage of oleic acid: a delicacy to be consumed raw. But it is also more expensive, as it is more complex and costly to produce than from ripe black olives. To put it in figures, producing a litre of traditional extra virgin olive oil (late harvest) requires between four and five kilos of olives (20-25% yield), while producing an early harvest oil requires 8-12 kilos (8-12% yield).

Virgin olive oil

Of lower quality than the previous one, it can have up to 2 degrees of acidity and slight defects in aromas and flavour. For sale to the final consumer.

This oil is obtained only by mechanical processes and must meet two conditions:

  1. Its acidity must be less than or equal to 2º.
  2. In a tasting, the median of the defect must be less than or equal to 2.5 and the median of the fruitiness must be greater than zero.

Thus, virgin olive oil can have some defects with little intensity and must have fruity aromas and flavours.

Lampante virgin olive oil

It has an acidity greater than 2 degrees and an unpleasant flavour and aromas. It is not suitable for consumption and must be refined. All virgin oils with acidity greater than 2 degrees are classified as lampante. These are the characteristics:

  1. Its acidity is higher than 2º.
  2. In tasting, the median of the defects is greater than 2.5.
  3. In tasting, the median fruitiness is equal to zero.

Thus, lampante olive oil is an oil with an unpleasant taste and smell, and a lot of acidity. In some cases, its colour is different from the green and golden colours typical of virgin and extra virgin olive oils. They usually come from olives in poor condition due to major pests, frost, and which have been lying on the ground for a long time without being harvested. Given the poor characteristics of this oil, its commercialisation is prohibited. For its consumption it is necessary to refine it.

The labels generally show generic numbers for the qualities 0.4º and 1º or by the qualifications "Intense" and "Mild".

Both intense olive oil and mild olive oil are classified as olive oil, obtained from a blend of refined olive oil and virgin olive oil. If the product contains more virgin olive oil or evoo, it will be classified as intense olive oil or 1º, and if on the other hand it contains more refined oil, it will be called mild olive oil or 0, 4º.

Many of the Virgin Olive Oils, AOVE, are elaborated within the Denominations of Origin (DO) of the oil. Where it is elaborated following the guidelines of its Regulatory Council. A Denomination of Origin is a quality system that is created to protect and recognise the quality of an agri-food product, with a differentiated quality delimited in a specific geographical area. It also helps to preserve autochthonous varieties by drawing attention to their care and preventing their disappearance. Furthermore, the harvesting of the fruit in the field, processing in the mill and bottling must be carried out in accordance with the regulations and specifications of the designation of origin. Spain is the leader in olive oil production, in the number of designations of origin and also in the surface area of organic olive groves.

In our portfolio of olive oil mills for sale in Spain you can find quality specialised mills in well-known Designations of Origin and other types of mills that focus on large production volumes. There are 30 Designations of Origin in Spain, DO Sierra Mágina, DO Sierra de Cazorla, DO Sierra de Segura, DO Montes de Granada, DO Montoro-Adamuz, DO Baena, DO Lucena, DO Priego de Córdoba, DO Poniente de Granada, DO Antequera, DO Estepa and DO Sierra de Cádiz, DO Montes de Toledo, DO Montes de Alcaraz, DO Campo de Montiel, DO Campo de Caltrava, DO la Alcarria, DO Madrid, DO Gata-Hurdes, DO Monterrubio, DO Garrigues, DO Siurana, DO Terra Alta, DO Bajo Ebro-Montsià, DO Bajo Aragon, DO Empordà, DO Comunidad Valenciana. Finally, we should mention the smaller DOs from the north of Spain such as DO Sierra del Moncayo, DO Rioja and DO Navarra.

The 30 designations are distributed as follows by Autonomous Community:

  • 13 in Andalusia
  • 4 in Catalonia
  • 3 in Castilla-La Mancha
  • 2 in Extremadura
  • 1 in Navarra
  • 1 in La Rioja

If you want to buy an olive grove....

If you want to buy an olive grove....

It is exciting to feel like the owner of an olive mill and to elaborate your own olive oil. Some purchases or investments in olive groves made in the past were made on the basis of emotion, guided by the illusion of producing one's own oil. But the passage of time has shown that it is essential to analyse, from the rationality of a rigorous economic analysis, the expected profitability with a previously defined business plan.

As we can see, buying an olive grove or an oil mill is a decision that is usually taken from emotion, but it should always be taken from reason.

There are investments in olive mills that have returns that are not measured in terms of accounting results in terms of oil sales. For example, there are business groups that have mills in their structure that are responsible for producing oil that they use for commercial promotion among the customers of their other group companies. These are usually oil mills that, although their production capacity and equipment is greater, they strive to have small productions of very high quality, which they distribute or sell among their customers, as we have said, to promote their group of companies.

We have also seen cases of oil mills with estates that are used to house distributors, the best customers of the mill or the customers of the group's companies. In this case, for a correct assessment, we must also separate the economic returns of one and the other activity in the analysis and place them appropriately in the context of the chosen business strategy and business plan.

Whatever the case may be, our mission is to accompany the investor in this unique acquisition process. For this reason, we provide you with a team of experts, with extensive knowledge of the market, who will listen carefully to your priorities and accompany you through the exciting process of becoming the owner of an olive grove or olive oil mill in Spain or Portugal.

If you want to sell your olive grove...

If you want to sell your olive grove...

Just as at the moment of buying an olive farm or mill or starting to build one, enthusiasm and impetus provide the energy for a task that is carried out with the emotion of being able to enjoy one's own oil; the moment of selling the oil mill does not have to be a painful or sad process.
It is true that the life of companies, like that of people, is not eternal and that, sometimes, the finiteness of people, linked to the lack of family continuity in the business, can be natural reasons for deciding to sell the olive grove or family oil mill. When making this decision, especially in the case of small olive mills, it is particularly important to take a discreet approach to the market.
At other times, the olive estate has fulfilled the business mission for which it was created and we find ourselves with quality olive groves, with fully functioning facilities, which are no longer useful to the owner company and which require either a complete sale or the entry of an investor.

On other occasions, the facilities need to be renovated, or the sales force or the distribution team needs to be reinforced, because, even in the case of oil mills in operation, with quality oils, with good oil production techniques, it is possible that, due to market circumstances, or for a simple question of branding, the company is only a few thousand bottles away from reaching the break-even point. In this case, it is of fundamental importance to defend the real value of the mill from the beginning of the marketing process so that its owners obtain a fair price through an orderly and rational sale. The aim is to ensure that the buyer actually pays the value of the mill, provided that the mill is profitable for the buyer. Otherwise, our job is to find another buyer.

The day of the sale of the olive grove or olive mill can also be, as we can imagine, a happy moment. All that is required is to deal with the transaction in the most appropriate way, given your circumstances.

Whatever the situation of your olive estate or olive mill, our team of experts will be happy to listen to you, to analyse the options, to advise you and to accompany you throughout the process.

Olive mills in operation are, logically, businesses in operation, with customers, suppliers and employees. Any rumour that this or that olive mill may be for sale, without accompanying it with the appropriate information, could be very negative news that would only worsen the delicate situation in which it may find itself. For this reason, and for self-imposed reasons of professional ethics and deontology, all our commercial actions follow a rigorous process of confidentiality and compliance with the law.

All our olive groves and olive oil mills are managed with total confidentiality and absolute discretion.
If you wish to sell your olive estate in Spain or Portugal, we recommend that you contact us to start a conversation with us so that we can study your case.
