During the recent organic food fair BIOCORDOBA, celebrated in Cordoba 25-27 September 2008, Chambergo received the BIOInnova Gold award given by The Regional Government Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries in Andalusia, the County Council of Cordoba, the Organic Business Association of Andalusia and the Andalusian Committee for Organic Farming and Livestock. It is the first edition of this contest, which is dedicated to recognising the most innovative organic food products of the year.
Chambergo, Cía. de Exportación SL, is a market leader in the commercialization of organic extra virgin olive oils and products have been sold worldwide such as Japan, Norway, Germany, New Zealand, South Korea, The Netherlands, Canada and Poland. Having received the NOP certification (National Organic Program) by The United Sates Deparment of Agriculture (USDA), the company is currently looking for partners in the United States, and is planning to introduce the products through a series of events in spring 2009.
Chambergo received the BIOInnova Gold award for its organic extra virgin olive oil of the “Picolimón” variety, and for being the only company worldwide which commercializes an olive oil made from 100% organic “Picolimón” olives.
The olive oil sector has lots of tradition in Spain and the jury emphasized the need of quality and innovation and point out the organic Chambergo “Picolimón” olive oil as being “attractive and original”.
Under the brand name Hacienda Chambergo Picolimón, an olive oil of high quality is produced. Olives are harvested from the company’s own trees in Aljarafe - close to Seville - near the rivers Agrio and Guadimar and the National Park Doñana, where sandy soil and warm climate give favourable conditions for a Picolimón olive oil of singular and exceptional flavour. The variety is characterized by the strong aroma of green grass and fresh olives, and the flavour with hints of tomato, banana, apple and almond. Also, compared to other olive oil types, the oil does not irritate the back of the throat and is not bitter in taste.
“The design has always had great importance in the company, and we have chosen bottles with a format that reminds you of bottles seen in old pharmacies, decorated with an elegant label”, says the managing director of the company Carlos Osuna. The glass bottle is covered with beige paint - it is specifically produced for Chambergo Cía. Exportación SL, and the bottle design has turned into the easy recognisable symbol of the company. “This BIOInnova award encourages us to continue the way we work; innovating without loosing contact to our roots while being loyal to our company philosophy” concludes managing director Carlos Osuna.
The Spanish company is currently looking for partners and collaborators in the United States.
