Bumper olive crop needs to be stored for next yearMALAGA’S olive oil is in such demand that it is now being exported to shores as far-flung as China.

Montexaquez Oliva, a family company founded in Montejaque in the Serrania de Ronda three years ago is also marketing its liquid gold in India, Bahrain and Kazakhstan.

This small company produces 30,000 litres of oil per year from just 16 hectares of olive groves and has been exporting to China for three years already.

‘Vinas Vijas’ branded oil – made from a combination of the ‘hojiblanca’ and ‘lechin’ trees – is also sold domestically by Sabor a Malaga.

Manager, Cristina Garcia, said the competition in Spain was so fierce that to approach the international market – which pays more for quality products and buys in bulk – was a wise move and that the company will expand further in the gourmet market this year.
