In 1950, the Merino family started the industrial activity of seasoning and selling olives. Their cooked green olives and Campo Real type, manufactured in Extremadura, had as firstly destination market the Spanish capital city. From its warehouses located in the center of Madrid, on Francisco Campos Street, olives were stocked with corner shops, markets and cafes. That fact allowed them to get to know and gain a prestige that encouraged them at the beginning of the 80s, to sell their olives throughout all the Spanish geography and to start a new stage of internationalization by making known the excellences of a product to which they have devoted a whole lifetime.
Quality, competitiveness and efficiency are the cornerstones that guide the activity of Merino Olives.
