1930 Porcuna Factory
Start of activity
It was born in Porcuna, Jaén, a small oil mill, run by D. Luis Torres Torres, grandfather of the current manager of Aceites Maeva. It is an industrial oil mill that produces 'Santo Rostro' olive oil and that responds to the demands of its surroundings. His success is such that he decides to start a new stage outside of Andalusia.
1974 Madrid Office
Commercial concern to publicize a product of our land
That is what led D.Juan Francisco Torres Morente, son of the founder, to open a small oil office with the traditional crank system in the center of Madrid. Located on Calle del Sombrerete, in the Lavapies neighborhood; we find 'Aceites Santo Rostro Puro de Oliva de Cosechero a Consumidor'. This place was the protagonist of long lines in search of its precious olive oil, also motivated by the new law of the Council of Ministers that authorized the free price of oil.
1979 Transfer to Grenada
This year represents a before and after in the history of the company that, motivated by the great acceptance of its oil, returns to Andalusia with Mr. Juan Francisco Torres Morente at the helm. A plant that incorporates the bottling and mill processes is inaugurated in Albolote (Granada) under the name, for the first time, of Torres-Morente.
1990 Third Generation
Incorporation of the third generation
At this stage, the grandchildren of the founder and children of D.Juan, Amalia and Luis Torres-Morente Concha, enter the scene, contributing human capital to this great family project. It will be D. Luis Torres-Morente Concha who becomes the current manager of the company and who opens the way abroad.
2000 International Expansion
Aceites Maeva is committed to expansion and internationalization, becoming a worldwide benchmark as an exporting and distributing company. This leads it to meet rigorous quality requirements, and adapt to very different markets, always printing a very defined personality to each of its oils.
2002 Revolutionary Formats
New containers emerge such as the revolutionary spray format and its 'Bag on valve' system, which respects the characteristics of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, since it is pressure-packed without gas or CFCs. The careful design, the quality of the product and the materials used have allowed this product to gain prominence year after year and the variety has increased; Finding ourselves today with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with Chilli Pepper, Provencal Herbs, Garlic, Pesto or Parmesan flavor; in addition to the original Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar.
