welcome to alma organics
Alma Organics is a small partnership distributing Benizalte extra virgin organic olive oil throughout the UK and in Spain.
The oil comes from the beautiful Alpujarra Region of southern Spain, using hand picked olives from small organic farms. The olives are pressed at the Flor de la Alpujarra Cooperative organic mill and the result is a healthy, high quality, full-flavoured oil. Because it is cold pressed it retains all the natural flavours, vitamins, antioxidants and other healthy properties of the ripe olive fruit.
At Alma Organics we are pleased to exclusively offer this delicious fruity oil within the UK. By distributing this oil we aim to support local small-scale organic farmers by offering them a market for their oil, at a fair price. We believe this will also encourage other local farmers to convert to sustainable organic methods, and help to preserve the unique ecology of this beautiful region.
We are two families who live on Cortijo Almagregas in the Alpujarras. The farm was abandoned when we bought it, we rebuilt the stone farm houses and brought the farm back to life using traditional methods. We have organically farmed our olives here for over 20 years.
We set up Alma Organics after receiving compliments about our olive oil and requests from people wanting to buy the oil in the U.K. As a member of the Flor de la Alpujarra Cooperative we also aim to help local organic farmers and preserve the unique biodiversity of the area.
