Nature, combined with tradition,

cannot be copied


The olive growers' cooperative in Borba is located in the heart of the Alentejo and produces a range of oils obtained through two of the most famous varieties of olives, Galega and Cobrançosa, which are characterized by their distinctive flavor and fragrances. At the base of this quality are Geography and the traditional olive grove. Some of the members of the Cooperative of Borba still have olive trees that date back to the time of the Roman occupation.

The Romans left traces of their culture and agricultural methods in the region that are still indelibly perceptible today, which give our products a specific singularity. A certain part of our old olive grove still maintains cultivars from the time of the Muslim occupation. Some olive trees present in the Alentejo have a similar situation to those of Palestine, with ages of almost 3,000 years


Traditional rainfed olive groves, where organic farming is practiced, where grazing, hunting and other types of species persist, a complete biodiversity environment, free of fertilizers, chemicals and other pesticides, where family farming is practiced, with several particularities in all phases, and where the harvesting of the olives is done by non-mechanized processes. The fact that they use rainfed agriculture areas, and do not use pesticides, allows to maintain and defend the rich natural biodiversity of the region. Respect for nature and tradition result in the production of the best olive oils, with high quality. The unique and special characteristics of Borba's olive oils are certified in Portugal and obey the strictest EU rules, in terms of chemical and sensory.
