Certifications: PDO (AOP)

In 2017, the Lucques du Languedoc olive earned the Protected Designation of Origin, a great reward for the olive-growers of the L’Oulibo cooperative. The PDO is a consumer guarantee of local provenance, superior quality, rigorous checks on the fruit’s preparation, and 100% manual harvesting. It recognizes the ancestral know-how of the region’s producers and their environmentally friendly farming methods.

Earning the PDO Lucques du Languedoc will help to ensure a long-term future for olive-growers and preserve a landscape and a heritage.

Tasting Profile: These bright coloured and firm flesh olives will impress every palate. Unique among olives, the flavour profile is slightly sweet, delicate, with minimal salt, and with a slight buttery and nutty taste.
