Euripides called Messinia the land of the good fruit for its beauty and its fertile rich earth. Messinia, the land of the Olive Tree and of the Olive Oil, yields the world famous Kalamata Olives and Kalamata Olive Oil, particularly the Messinia Olive Oil, a 100% pure and natural fruit juice of the highest quality and of unique nutritional value, which has been ranked in the category of Extra Virgin Olive Oil after a series of chemical analyses. The olive tree, a sacred tree, has been cultivated in Messinia since the 12th century BC. Archaeological excavations in the palace of Nestor, the ancient king of Messinia, have brought to light evidence that show the enormous importance of the juice of the olive tree for the society of the time.
“La Española” is Acesur’s main brand. This group started as Aceites y Jabones Luca de Tena in 1840, and it was considered the oldest olive oil Company in Spain. The name of this brand was taken from the Spanish Colony La Española island, where Hernando Columbus (Christopher Columbus’ son) started in the 16th century the exportations of olive oil produced at Hacienda Guzman in Seville. This factory is nowadays owned by La Española Oils.
La Española’s international projection and leadership was reinforced when it was included in the Leading Brands of Spain Forum in 2002.
