Sustainability & certifications
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
At Castillo de Canena we nurture the tree’s natural life cycle, combining traditional wisdom with cutting-edge technology and scrupulous respect for the environment. All of the olive trees are totally machine-accessible and the groves equipped with drip fertigation systems under Integrated Production (Producción Integrada or A.P.I.) certification, guaranteeing practices that respect the natural environment and operate under rational cultivation systems.
The electric power needed to run the orchard is obtained by solar energy plants, the pruning off-cut is used for biomass and there are several drought stress control points in the orchards to maximize use of water.
INNOVATION AS A PRINCIPLE
We are aware that we work in a traditional sector, with a product that has been traded for 3000 years. But we also know that through innovation in the cultivation process, the nuances can make our oils more exquisite and alive; that our work can contribute more than a consumer product to the world, it is an entire culture to be experienced.
With this conviction, we continuously move forward in research: tracing our carbon footprint, investigating organic crops, new varieties in our area and combining the knowledge of the most prestigious scientists with the master olive experts in the region.
