Sabor a Málaga
If you have been to Málaga, you will know that it is a city immensely rich in flavours and aromas.
The area is renowned for it’s fish and seafood, in particular it’s sardines and boquerones (anchovies), commonly acknowledged as the best in Spain.
In more recent years, the province of Málaga, with it’s 100,000 hectares of olive groves, has excelled in the production of high quality extra virgin olive oil (EVOO).
You may have noticed the ‘Sabor a Málaga’ stamp on our bottles of La Samiaja Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Sabor is Spanish for ‘flavour’.
The project ‘Sabor a Málaga’ was launched in 2011 as a result of the joint work of the Council of Malaga with over 400 companies in the agricultural industry in the province.
The main aim of the ‘Sabor a Málaga’ brand is to unify the highest quality products in the province under a global image to allow consumers to easily identify these products.
The brand doesn’t just recognise olive oil, you will find nuts, fruits, cheeses, honey, meats, beers, wines, spirits and a whole lot more under the ‘Sabor a Málaga’ umbrella.
