The olive growing of the future: efficient, technological, sustainable and carbon-credit bearing.

The olive sector is immersed in continuous changes to which farmers, cooperatives and mills have to adapt in order to guarantee the future. A different world economic situation caused by the war in Ukraine and a serious drought whose effects are not only being reflected today, but may determine the coming years in the production and marketing of olive oil, make a rigorous and exhaustive analysis of the future of olive growing more necessary than ever, which for the Interóleo Group must be, inevitably, efficient, sustainable and technological.

This is why Grupo Interóleo has joined forces with Balam and Santander Agro to organise an interesting conference on 13 September at Ferias Jaén to discuss how the olive sector has to face the future that lies ahead. The event will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and will include several presentations and a round table discussion. The first conference will be given by José Luis Vaca, Director of Sustainability, and Juan Carlos Cañasveras, Business Development at Balam Agriculture, who will talk about "Sultana and Cultiva Carbono, the evolution of the olive grove is here".

Afterwards, the agreement between Santander Agro and Grupo Interóleo will be presented by José Antonio Lara (territorial head of Agro in Andalusia of the Santander Group). The day will end with a round table discussion on the reality of the efficient and sustainable transformation of the olive sector. The experts who will analyse this future are Juan Gadeo, president of Grupo Interóleo; Pedro Navarro, director of Balam Crops; and José Antonio Lara, territorial manager of Agro Andalucía at Santander.
