Coopoliva and the Arab markets

The Middle East is one of the main markets of Agro Sevilla has in the Middle East, and the Coopoliva brand one of the most remarkable ambassadors of our products in this region of the world. Consumers in these countries know our brand well, and closely associate the consumption of Spanish table olives with Coopoliva. Knowing how to adapt to the tastes and demands of the local public has been key to achieving this degree of affinity.

As a result of all this, Arab markets currently account for 20 percent of Agro Sevilla's exports, which, let us remember, is the world's leading producer and exporter of table olives.
