Company visit to Basilippo Olive Oil
In March students visited Basilippo Olive Oil, a small family company located in the outskirts of Sevilla and dedicated to the production of gourmet olive oil. Students toured the grounds of the company, learning about the production process, from the caretaking of the olives to the extraction of the olive oil. Students also discussed with the manager the company´s markets, their market strategy, and growth. The visit ended with a tasting of one of their fruit infused olive oil varieties.
