What Rincón Pandora does
Rincón Pandora is an olive company that in 2014 has started an intensive cultivation (real frame 7x5) of 9,000 plants: genetically certified varieties of olive trees from Italy (Vivai Pacini, Pescia).
Rincón Pandora is an ECO-ECO company: the alliance with research centres and universities in Italy and Europe has allowed the introduction of innovative techniques and methods, safeguarding the environment and the rural landscape generated by these long-lived trees. The plants contribute to mitigate Climate Change and retain carbon, this is why olive trees are a 'climate-smart crop'.
In March 2019, with the first and outstanding harvest, the company established the brand PIQUE ROTO, with its registered trademark, for the marketing and sale of our products.
We can count on the Mill Ernesto Singer only 12 km from our plantation, which hosts our personal storage tanks.
In the plantation itself, the laboratory for the production of table olives and pate is being built and equipped with machinery imported from Italy.
All products of the PIQUE ROTO line, in order to ensure the highest quality, are made exclusively with olives from the Rincón Pandora plantation no longer than 12 hours after being harvested.
