SOL Portugal brand

Ribafreixo sells extra virgin olive oil  through its SOL Portugal brand produced and bottled solely and exclusively by the Vidigueira Agricultural Cooperative (CAV). The SOL Portugal brand is the exclusive label for all the CAV’s exported olive oil. This superior food product , obtained directly from olives using mechanical processes only, is solely intended for export.   Targeted at some of the most demanding international markets ,this superior olive oil  is produced by a certified entity ( BRC, HACCP, ISO 22000:2005 and Kosher), continuing a centuries old tradition found throughout the Mediterranean.This particular olive oil comes from na unsual set of climatic conditions – Mediterranean, with traces of a continental climate during  the summertime – and soils rich in calcium and potassium , creating the ideal environment for the olive trees that fill the landscape. Especially those that produce olives  of the “Galega vulgar” variety, the most common, and best exemple of their vitality in these flat lands. Olive oil embodies , in and  of itself,  an entire culture and lifesyle of this region’s people. It is deeply tied to local custos, from working to eating.

The olive oil of Vidigueira, which is included in the Interior Alentejo Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) has long been admired for its unmatched quality and degree of purity. In addition, the municipality still has a number  of traditional mills preserving ancestral olive oil manufacturing methods. The SOL Portugal brand keeps these qualities intact, but bring them to the rest of the world after a production process where new technologies play a decisive role. These ensure improved quality control.

In a world that is becoming increasingly tired of the olive oil sold everywhere, whose sensory qualities have been lost to quantity and standardization, the SOL Portugal brand offers the best  there is in olive oil. The domestic market , in turn, is completely exclusive to CAV through its “Relíquia da Vidigueira” brand.
