Best olive harvest in history for Fuerteventura

The oil mill Cabildo de Fuerteventura located in the Pozo Negro Farm has ground 118.396 kilos of olives. This number becomes the highest ever registered in Fuerteventura. ''For the first time, we have harvested over 118.000 kilos of olives that represent 11.115 litres of oil'', indicated last month the president of Fuerteventura's Cabildo, Marcial Morales, during the event when the olive oil was handed over to the 88 olive growers. ''This is the best ever recorded number since the beginning of olive oil production in Fuerteventura: a product who quality has been recognised within and outside of the Canaries'', adds Mr Morales. He added that over the past few years, the number of olive growers who produce oil in Fuerteventura has increased. ''The oil comes in addition to the tomato, Aloe Vera and Fuerteventura's salt that are related to the work well done in the primary sector'', pointed out Mr Morales. 83 conventional olive growers and 5 ecological olive growers participated in this campaign. The Experimental Farm of Pozo Negro has two oil mills that grind the olives with the stones and later the solids are separated from the liquids in a centrifuge. The oil is then deposited in tanks for its decantation and it is analysed by a laboratory in order to be certified as safe for consumption. This oil produced on the island is free of pesticides.
