Although Sucesores de Hermanos López
exists as it is since 1978, the origins of this familial company date
back to 1845. It was then that from a small – not even one hectare
– olive plot a patrimony arose that would grow and consolidate
itself along six generations.
Today, the old olive-oil mill, built by Antonio López Ortiz in 1918,
has been modernized and possesses the most modern ecological continuous
system, which does not produce any olive mill wastewater. This entails
a commitment to commercialize its highest quality products: Morellana and La Laguna.
olive, whose juice is the olive oil we offer, is produced in olive
groves located in the south from Córdoba, in the municipalities of
Luque and Baena, in a terrain with soft – and sometimes steep – slopes,
most of it at the foot of the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park.
Here the two greatest Andalusian olive-producing areas are
joining: Jaén, with the olive variety called “picual”, and Córdoba,
where the characteristic variety is “hojiblanca.” To these we have to
add a third variety, characteristic of Baena Denomination of Origin,
and known as “picudo” or “carrasqueño”, which produces one of the most
exquisite oils in the world.
This is not achieved in few days, there have been many campaigns in which we have strived to improve more and more our olive oil, now that the results has arrived we have more reasons to continue on the path started long ago. Congratulations to the entire team of Sucesores de Hermanos López. Congratulations to the entire team of Sucesores de Hermanos López for the 1º Place with MORELLANA and to the other competitors for the great job.
