Our Co-ops: Badolatosa Cooperative
Did you know that Agro Sevilla is the union of 11 Co-ops, that represent more than 4,000 olive growers? Our Co-ops are the heart of Agro Sevilla. This month find out more about Badolatosa Cooperative.
Member of Agro Sevilla since its establishment in 1978, this cooperative is based in Badolatosa, a 15km drive to our plant in La Roda de Andalucía. Badolatosa Co-op is located next to the Genil, a river that flows from the Mulhacén, the highest mountain in the Iberian peninsula, to the legendary river Guadalquivir. It consists of 228 members, which have about 1,600 hectares of olive trees of the “hojiblanca” and “manzanilla” varieties.
The Badolatosa cooperative is focused exclusively on the production of table olives

Mr. Álvaro Morte, manager of the Badolatosa Cooperative: “Our strength lies in the group and the goals that we have reached together. Without Agro Sevilla our growers’ products would be subject to greater speculation”.
