Producer of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

From our family's travels across Europe in the last two decades, Spain has captured a special place in our hearts for its gastronomy. We had learned that the secret ingredient to the delightful taste, aroma, and magnificent indulgence of every Spanish dish is the use of extra virgin olive oil from the olives of that region. 

 

After trying different brands in the U.S. supermarkets, we realized that it was a real challenge to find an olive oil that matched the taste and quality we had experienced in Spain. 

It presented several opportunities. Introduce this high-quality delectable olive oil from the region to U.S. consumers. Rural small farmers from Spain wanted to sell at the U.S. market. Promote rural economic development to attract the next generation of farmers. Educate U.S. consumers about one of the main ingredients of the Mediterranean diet known for its health benefits. And support environmental sustainability.

 

So, I decided to break away from my 25+ years of the corporate world and founded Louis Organics in 2019. I bought a stake in a company made up of small rural sustainable organic olive farms located in the mountains of Sierra de Alcaraz, Albacete, Spain.

We produce the best tasting extra virgin olive oil made from olives of these farms on the mountain range with cold winters and long hot summers ideal for olive cultivation. We follow sustainable farming practices like manure as a natural fertilizer, fallen leaves compost, rainwater harvesting, crop rotation, integrated livestock, and cover crops. We take all measures to preserve its freshness, flavor, and nutrients by harvesting the olives using mechanical means and cold extracting the oil within hours of harvest. The result is intense fruity olive oil with a delightful balance of pleasant spiciness and bitterness taste of green almond, tomato, apple, and freshly cut grass. They are packaged in dark glass bottles at the mill and then stored in a temperature and light controlled facility ready for shipping to customers. 

 

Our brand Almazara de Alcaraz is a high-quality varietal blend of Picual and Arbequina olives that is the most deliciously surprising and inspired olive oil indulgence. Regardless of the climatic variations of the region, this unique blend delivers a consistent taste every season. It has a high Polyphenol (antioxidants) content and low acidity.

Consumers can find our brand only at farmers' markets, specialty food stores, and the Louis Organics online store.

 

Every bottle sold is empowering rural farmers to continue sustainable organic farming practices and motivate young farmers to sustain rural economic development.
