Since its launch over 70 years ago, Mueloliva has been working to preserve traditional olive oil making, and fighting against mass production, which inevitably results in deterioration of the oil.
Mueloliva founder Muela Mateo Velasco was a visionary who was convinced that the future of olive oil lay in upholding tradition and traditional production methods. Staying committed to his beliefs, Velasco focused on producing high quality olive oil using traditional production methods, which the company continues to do this today. Over the years, Mueloliva has advanced in their olive oil making business, while still retaining traditional methods.
The brand’s extra virgin oils have a high concentration of polyphenols, tocopherols, and phytosterols, all components with great nutritional value. The olive oil is extracted using a unique and exclusive process that does not use either water or heat, both of which lower the quality of the oil. The absence of heat and water ensures that every single quality of the extracted oil is preserved.
A lot of thought has gone into the packaging too. Pressing and bottling is done in the same facility. This helps prevent potential risks that could arise during the transportation stage, which could change the original qualities of the oil.
Through the generations, the objectives remained unchanged. Every successive generation remains committed to enhancing the value of the product through design and innovation. The many years of staying true to their values and tradition paid off. The brand’s extra virgin olive oil, “Venta del Barón” has won numerous prizes and awards of recognition over the years. Ranked as one of the 8 best Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the world, Mueloliva's olive oils is sure to leave your taste buds dancing.
