What’s behind this certification

What does it certify?

What does it certify?

Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO) bearing the Olivares Vivos seal will be those whose production has been measured and certified as having increased biodiversity.
Why biodiversity?

Why biodiversity?

Biodiversity is the variety of species living in a specific environment. The more species, the better the quality of the soil, air, water and, ultimately, better health for you and the planet.
And why olive groves?

And why olive groves?

Olive groves are the most important crop for nature conservation in Europe. Thanks to the Olivares Vivos LIFE Project, we know that olive groves still have high levels of biodiversity and a great potential to recover it.
Why are they unique?

Why are they unique?

Olivares vivos will be the first European agri-food certification that will guarantee the real and effective recovery of biodiversity.

It will not only certify good intentions and good practices, but a certain increase in the number of fauna and flora species in the olive groves where these EVOOs have been produced.

Olivares Vivos will be the first EVOO in the world and the first agri-food product in Europe with a certified contribution to biodiversity conservation.
