A CERTIFICATION FOR THE ONLY EVOOs THAT SCIENTIFICALLY GUARANTEE THE INCREASE OF BIODIVERSITY

OLIVARES VIVOS HALLMARK

It is the hallmark that will demonstrate that the plantation from which the oils come will have achieved the objectives set for the recovery of the flora and fauna. In addition, they have an excellent quality, since only those who have the Extra Virgin qualification can take it. At Olivares Vivos, recovery of biodiversity and quality go together.

It is based on a regulation elaborated from the data of the most exhaustive research on the biodiversity of the olive grove carried out worldwide, with the solid foundation provided by scientific organizations, such as SEO/BirdLife, the University of Jaén or the CSIC.

OLIVARES VIVOS CERTIFIES NOT ONLY GOOD INTENTIONS NOR PRACTICES, BUT REAL RESULTS, THAT SHOW:

That the initial flora and fauna of the olive grove have been measured, what is done by analysing a series of indicators at certain times of the year. This evaluation is made on the basis of the largest research on the biodiversity of the olive grove provides.
That actions have been carried out to recover biodiversity and that, after some time, the behaviour of the flora and fauna has been quantified once again. In this way, we know the amount that has been rescued and if the objectives established in the certification regulations have been achieved.
Those actions are maintained and the flora and fauna continue to being recovered, what is done through an intermediate audit, which is carried out 30 months after obtaining the certification, and new biodiversity measurements every 60 months.
