The world’s largest producer of olive oil is Spain, followed by Italy. The biggest oil reserves in the world are located in Andalusia (Olive Oil, of course!). The autochthonous varieties in those areas tend to get harvested early and are often marketed as ‘early harvest’. The difference between early harvested oils and late harvest oils is that the former tends to have a stronger taste than the late harvest ones.
Most available oils on the market have this strong taste. Our oil however comes from late harvested olives, so mild that some people think it is seed oil. One of the best things about it is that you can use it instead of butter for baking!
At Teruel Foods, we prefer an olive oil that doesn’t mask any other flavour from the other ingredients. If that’s what you like, that’s what you’ll get from us.
Olive oil is a juice of olives. If you harvest them when they are not fully ripened the taste is rough and strong, which might suit some customers. But if you pick them fully ripened and you create a juice with them, you get a sweeter and smoother juice. Think of tomatoes, would you squeeze green tomatoes to have a nice oil taste or you’d prefer perfectly ripened ones?
General available oils come from Andalusia or Italy. In both of them they prefer strong tastes masquerading flavours. In Teruel, we don’t. We like tasting real flavours. Do you want to follow us?

This is the logo of @TeruelFoods . It explains our natural motto and how simple good living should be. Never forget it !!!
It tries to evoque a passport stamp as I’m pretty sure you have not heard of #Teruel and part of out brand is the excitement of learning by travel (maybe only mentally).
The 2 faces are based on the story of Teruel Lovers. They’d call it drama on the tellie, but we just thing is a story of love and passion. That’s how we are.
There are more details to be clarified about this logo, so please, ask, but anyway we’ll keep posting about it.
We are certainly well surprised of food practices across the food industry. The olive oil labelling is subject to some EU Directives in order to make sure customers understand better what they are eating, but I have to say, all these cheap olive oils are cheap for a reason and to those of you using some of them, pls read the label next time you buy as you might be eating something you don’t think it is.
Some of the statements are shocking like: Blend of EU and non EU oils, meaning: I have added whatever oils I can to make this oil cheap, I hope you keep not reading the labels so I can keep selling this crap as gold, thank you.
For Teruel Foods, Extra Virgin olive oil is the juice of olives, simple and clear.
The time to harvest #olives is getting closer … pls enjoy one #Matarraña Olive Empeltre Tree … #TeruelLove
