What Rincón Pandora does
Rincón Pandora is an olive-trees plantation and extravirgin olive oil production company that in 2014 has started a 9,000 plants intensive cultivation (olive-trees spacing 7x5), with genetically-certified varieties of olive trees imported from Italy (Vivai Pacini, Pescia).
Rincón Pandora is an ECO-ECO company: the alliance with research centres and universities in Italy has allowed the introduction of innovative methods and techniques, caring for the environment and orchestrating a fine rural landscape as this is being generated by these elegant, long-lived trees. These plants contribute to mitigate climate-change and retain carbon dioxide: this is why olive trees are classified as 'climate-smart crop'.
In March 2019, with the first outstanding harvest, the company established the brand PIQUE ROTO, with its registered trademark, for the marketing and sale of high-quality natural foods.
Olive processing is carried out at the Oil-mill 'El Amarillo', only 12 km far from our plantation, which hosts our PIQUE ROTO storage tanks. Within the plantation, a laboratory for the production of table-olives and olive paté has been established and equipped with specialized machinery imported from the town of Imperia (Liguria), in northwestern Italy.
In order to ensure offering the highest quality with the products of the PIQUE ROTO line, these are being prepared exclusively with olives from the Rincón Pandora plantation, processed no longer than 12 hours after being harvested: this guarantees 100% products traceability, and a zero-kilometer process, thus allowing a unique quality to our foods.
CHEMICAL AND SENSORY ANALYSES
Consistent with its policy of transparency towards consumers, Pique Roto publishes each year both the chemical and sensory analyses of its extravirgin olive oils; these are carried out at the ANALYTICAL Group Institute of Florence (Italy) for the 2022 harvest, and by LATU for the 2023 harvest.
