The family business Soler Romero inspires as the largest, organic olive oil producer in Spain with unique extra virgin olive oils of top quality.
Soler Romero olive oil in top organic quality
The finca of Soler Romero, the largest organic olive oil producer in Spain, is located in Jaen, more precisely in Alcaudete, a small town in Andalusia, the sun-drenched south of the country. Cortijo el Tobazo consists of a single large olive grove that extends over more than 600 hectares. In the middle of the finca is the Almazara, the oil mill.
Soler Romero, the producer of the world-famous and recognized Soler Romero olive oil, is a family business that has specialized in organic olive oil production since 2001. Founded in 1860, the manufacturer of first-class, ecological extra virgin olive oil is now (already in the 6th generation) under the management of Doña Isabel Romero and her children.
As an anecdote about how the immense size of the olive grove came about, the family members fondly remember the following story: In the middle of the 19th century, Doña Casilda, the founder of the company, bought a plot of land. She allowed shepherds to graze their cattle on their land, but obliged them to plant olive trees in return. This is how the huge olive grove developed, the oldest trees of which are more than 200 years old.
This is how the Soler Romero olive oil is made
Producing healthy, high-quality organic extra virgin olive oil is Soler Romero's credo. This is why everything from cultivation to bottling of the oil takes place in-house at the family business. Only the self-grown olives are processed in the company's own mill. The high-quality organic extra virgin olive oil obtained from this is stored on the finca in stainless steel tanks and is also bottled in Cortijo el Tobazo.
Because the olive grove in Alcaudete is 600 meters above sea level, in an area that is exposed to large temperature fluctuations between winter and summer, the olive trees are largely immune to pests. In addition, the natural flora is preserved, which on the one hand also prevents pest infestation and at the same time makes it possible to dispense with chemical fertilization.
In order to avoid soil erosion, the natural vegetation cover - grasses and flowers - between the olive trees is preserved and cared for. Only waste from pruning, olive pomace and animal dung from the cattle living on the finca is used for fertilization.
Since the oil mill is in the middle of the area, it never takes more than three hours after the harvest before the olives can be ground. Of course, all manufacturing processes for the unique, organic Soler Romero extra virgin olive oil take place at low temperatures, so that all the healthy ingredients of the olive are transferred to the high-quality oil. After tasting and analysis, the finished Soler Romero olive oil is stored in the finca's cellar until it is bottled in large stainless steel tanks under a nitrogen atmosphere.
Soler Romero olive oil - ecology with passion
The Romero family is rightly proud of the worldwide recognition of their high-quality, ecological Soler Romero olive oil. Because with a lot of effort and passion, she not only devotes herself to the production of olive oil, but also pays special attention to first-class quality. At the same time, the family business attaches great importance to the preservation of the environment and is pleased about the great diversity of 197 animal and plant species in its olive grove.
Because only organic farming methods are used at Finca Cortijo el Tobazo, Soler Romero olive oil is popular all over the world and is exported to numerous countries in Europe, Asia and America. It has the following certificates:
- for Europe since 2001: CAAE (European organic regulation 834/2007)
- for the USA since 2003: USDA (USDA certificate, regulated in the National Organic Program = NOP)

- Soil erosion
- Pollution of surrounding soils, lakes and rivers
- Decline in flora and fauna
- Residues of fertilizers and pesticides in the groundwater
- Residues of fertilizers and herbicides in food
Organic olive cultivation:
- neither chemical nor synthetic agents are used
- Only natural (vegetable and animal) waste that arises on the finca is fertilized.
- natural ground cover (plants) are cherished and cared for
- no environmental pollution
- Conservation of flora and fauna
- Acceptance and inclusion of the natural cycles
- Harmony with nature
