So it started
After 30 years working in the international framework [international technical cooperation system], throughout different countries all over the world - Austria, Central America, West Africa, the Andes, South Asia - we brought to Uruguay our familiarity with investment projects, and our passion for precision agriculture, natural products, and gastronomic culture.
The desire to develop a high quality olive production, taking advantage of the familiarity we have with the Italian tradition in Liguria, and the varied and high quality land in the Eastern Republic, made us choose this country, where olive trees find excellent conditions for their growth. In Italy, for centuries, olive cultivation has shaped the territory, and the extensive and deep culture has characterised life in rural areas since the High Middle Ages.
The driving idea was, from the beginning, to import know-how, tradition and technical innovation, and technology from Italy, promoting the use of high-quality healthy food and the development of the olive sector in Uruguay.
How Rincón Pandora and Pique Roto were born
The size of the property, surrounded by estates that have thousands of hectares, suggested the name Rincón (corner). The Pandora surname originates from the name of our first dog, an English setter who followed us around the world between the '80s and' 90s and who would have very much appreciated living there.
During the 2017 Christmas season, visiting our son in eastern Australia, where he lives, a squall in Casupà caused the breakdown of around 3,000 wooden tutors (piques), the plant stings: which inspired to give a slight touch to the brand, in tribute to the climate of the property, very windy. In addition, the cutwaters, the trees, and the changes in the vegetation had created a humid area that attracted a lot of poultry biodiversity, which is reflected in the Brand with the name Pique Roto, which in the end turned out to be a registered trademark with its little bird.
