• Less than 2% of premium olives grown by cooperative members are used for this oil. Small-family owned olive groves have to be accepted into the cooperative and technicians choose the best groves at each harvest for this oil. Each batch is tested chemically and tasted at night to identify if chemical and organoleptic qualities are present and thus, a decision is made on whether to accept olives for the Parqueoliva Gold Series brand or assign them to other mass-market brands.
