Traceable quality, from farm to table

We work hand-in-hand with over 600 olive growers and 500 livestock farms across Spain, Italy and Greece.

Our database of customers’ ring-fenced farms and groves means control of origin and the ability to drill down and retrieve information, about any part of the supply chain, in real time.

We efficiently manage risks in complex supply chains from agriculture to primary processing, manufacturing, logistics, distribution and, finally, store.
