Over time MANDALIN TRANS OIL  has developed its system of olive cultivation. Our taditional methods of exploitation have been improved through the use of new agricultural technologies, giving the best results in terms of productivity and quality.  

Zone of Cultivation  MANDALIN TRANS OIL S.L. cultivation activities take place in Andalucia, which is located in the South of Spain, and specifically in the SIERRA MORENA Y CAMPIÑA NORTE locality in the province of Jaén. This region is the biggest producer of olive oil in Spain and, consequently, the world.

Olive varieties cultivates
The PICUAL is the main variety of olive cultivated by García Morón, giving the oil its distinctive greeny-yellowish tint, fresh, fruity smell and the characteristic hint of bitternes to its flavour.The great quantity of antioxidants makes it the most stable oil that exists.  

Differences with other varieties
Oils obtained from the PICUAL olive are characterized by their resistence to oxidiztion. Numerous studies have been conducted proving it’s stability and preservation over time compared to oils produced from other varieties. This is one of the reasons why the Picual has become the prominent variety of olive cultivated and processed in Jaén in recent years.

What should we do with our used oil?  

In many towns, until not so long ago, used olive oil was made into a homemade soap. Even today popular knowledge realises the beneficial properties of this practice when it comes to personal hygiene. On our website (in the Old Apothecary/Remedies section you will find the recipe for making olive oil soap).

Please, never throw used oil down the kitchen sink or down the toilet. It’s advisable to safely recycle it in the sealed containers provided by local authorities, which are clearly marked to avoid confusion. It’s best to contact your local authority in order to find the ‘recycling point’ closest to your home.

There are many solutions for the disposal of used cooking oil available on the market - in this case a solidifier of vegetable oil.
