The Spanish Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Isabel García Tejerina, said yesterday that the Government’s action in this term is to “promote the enormous potential of olive oil, a healthy product whose consumption can grow worldwide”.

During the delivery of the Premio Alimentos de España al Mejor Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra of the 2013/142013/14 campaign, held at the Ministry’s headquarters in Madrid, Isabel García Tejerina explained that Spain is “the first country in the world in number of hectares devoted to olive growing (about 2,600,000), the country’s leading producer (with 41% of the world’s olive oil and 61% of the European Union) and exporter”.

“This leadership has been confirmed in the current campaign, which breaks all records. At May 31st, production amounted to 1,772,900 tons, and exports to 707,800 tonnes, rising 41% and 44%, respectively, amongst the average of the last four seasons”, she said.
