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.
