All our raw materials come from supply chains carefully selected for the quality of their sanitary safety standards and production processes. They also are closely monitored to ensure compliance with the ISO 9001 standard and HACCP methods.

OLVEA Vegetable Oils produces a wide range of organic vegetable oils certified by Ecocert, in line with NOP standards and European Organic Regulation EC 889/2008, as well as fair-trade vegetable oils certified by Ecocert according to the Fair for Life standards.

Certifications management
