OLEOCAMPO’s olive oil mills were founded by agriculturists from Torredelcampo. Until that moment, agriculturists had their own oil mills. The beginnings of these cooperatives supposed the first step to get efforts forward to a common aim, reached to increase the number of partners year on year and at the same time, the volume of lands and olive oil production.
