“I’ve always loved Spanish culture and olives are an integral part of Spanish cuisine. Not only are they easy to use and delicious,” said Chef Seamus Mullen. “It’s important for me to use ingredients that speak for themselves and really add taste to a recipe but also keep the dish nutritious and flavorful.”
Set as the global leader for olive cultivation, Spain accounts for 39 percent of the world’s olive trade and holds the ideal climate for the crop’s growth.
The initiative for Olives from Spain is led by Interaceituna, an Inter-Professional Table Olive Organization recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment.
