Spain is the world leader of olive oil
Spain stands alone as the world's largest producer of olive oil, producing half of the world's olive oil. Spain produces more than the next ten countries COMBINED (Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Italy, etc.) !! This means that every other bottle of olive oil that you come across in the supermarket is from Spain, even though it may be branded coming from a different country. But it's not the world dominance in olive oil that makes Spain a perfect sourcing country, but rather the underlying reason WHY it's a world leader: Spain's diverse climate and geography (terroir) yield many different olive aromas and tastes (olive varieties), unparalleled to anywhere else in the world.
Jaén is known as the World's Capital of Olive Oil because its 66 million olive trees in this province, the size of Delaware, produces 25% of the world's extra virgin olive oil. Driving through this region is mesmerizing because it’s one of the largest human-made forests in the world. It’s difficult to describe what 66 million trees feels like. The only surface without trees are the roads.
