Ibiza has been producing olive oil by traditional methods since ancient times. The numerous oil mills (trulls) and olive trees scattered amongst carob trees and almond tress bear witness to the importance of this production, which is basically aimed at covering the needs of the local market.
Today, there are two oil mills with modern facilities in accordance with health legislation that allow for the production of extra virgin olive oil of excellent quality.
The most common variety of olives in Ibiza is empeltre olive (traditional variety, also known as Ibiza olive), arbequina olive, and picual olive. The first two varieties produce fruity oils, and if we add some picual olives, the conservation period increases. This last olive produces stronger-flavored oils.
Oli d’e is the guarantee collective mark created by the Island oil manufacturers.
