Alta Olea is a well-known brand and has 8 gold medals, 2 silver medals, and a bronze medal from highly regarded international olive oil competitions in London and Berlin.
The family-owned company is located in the El Krib region of northwestern Tunisia, with a focus on organic farming and the highest quality.
Chetoui is the second principal variety of olive in Tunisia and is the primarily cultivated variety at Alta Olea.
Alta Olea cultivates its olive trees in the traditional way. The picking of Chétoui olives is done by hand, using combs (or sometimes without), nets, and jute bags. The fresh olives are then cold-pressed at the mill just after harvest. However, their artisanal production is based on modern technologies – a perfect match for oliveCEPT®.
Saber Abidi, the owner of the Alta Olea estate, is part of the generation of entrepreneurs whose grandparents were farmers and who therefore remain strongly attached to the land.
It was therefore quite natural that he wanted to return to his agricultural roots, with respect for the values of the past, with additional knowledge and an entrepreneurial vision. Several members of the Abidi family are now working on the production of Alta Olea olive oil.
