Montegil on its way to Fancy Food 2019 in New York

We are preparing everything to attend one of the most important international food fairs, Fancy Food 2019 to be held on June 23, 24 and 25 in New York City.

Fancy Food is not just another food fair, since it is one of the most important events where companies from all over the world come together to present the latest news, the products we will consume in the coming years and the trends of a market that reinvents itself every day.

Visitors can participate in many seminars, tastings and cooking demonstrations, in addition to establishing contacts and business relationships with companies that attend it.

Fancy Food Show is the # 1 food fair in the Americas, with more than 47,000 visitors passing through this food fair in New York: producers, distributors, restaurants, supermarket chains, etc.

Montegil will be present at the fair, once again, as one of the main exporters of table olives from Spain to the USA, where the Mediterranean diet continues to boom year after year. The quality of our table olives and our PET container with aluminum heat seal, make our olives and pickles maintain their natural properties and all the flavor when reaching any part of the world, preserving their optimal state.

"Have an Olive Day" a campaign for the United States to know the benefits and nutritional properties of our olives.

The European Union, along with Olives from Spain (Interaceituna) and international chef Jose Andrés have launched a campaign in the US to raise awareness about the flavor, nutritional properties and benefits of table olives in Spain.

The "Have an Olive Day" campaign was launched in 2017 and since its presentation in New York, it has been touring regions with a remarkable consumption of olives such as Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia.

'Have an Olive Day', a play on words related to the expression 'Have a nice day', is "a positive greeting to inspire American consumers to discover and enjoy the versatility of the European olives, without having to ever get on a plane. It is a stimulus to experience the Mediterranean diet, known worldwide for its health and nutrition benefits. "

With the help of one of the most international Spanish chefs and holder of several Michelin stars, Jose Andrés, he throws a message in each event about the different ways of taking olives and their benefits for food. Attendees also taste the delicious dishes that can be created through the variety of European olives available. The Spanish chef is a great defender of olives, due to its European origin, and he uses them in many dishes as a star ingredient.

A booming market.

Spain is the world leader in the production and export of table olives, representing 21% of world production and 30% of world exports. In 2016, more than 83% of the olives imported into the US came from Europe, with the United States being the world's first consumer of table olives outside the European Union.

And as it could not be otherwise, Aceitunas Montegil takes its olives to the North American country, being one of its main export regions. Montegil olives are highly valued and welcomed for their flavor, quality and presentation, since our PET packaging makes the product cross the Atlantic keeping all its qualities and natural properties.

BENEFITS OF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

Why is Extra Virgin Olive Oil the best of all vegetable oils? What properties does Extra Virgin Olive Oil have? Is the Extra Virgin really so good for the diet? Can we consume Extra Virgin Olive Oil if we are on a diet? Today we solve your doubts, explaining the benefits of regular use of extra virgin olive oil.

The Mediterranean diet is so famous for providing a balanced nutrition and thus for its contribution to people’s health. This is largely thanks to the use of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. What are those properties of Extra Virgin Olive Oil that make it so beneficial for our health?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is resistant to high temperatures, which makes it ideal for cooking, but additionally is composed of unsaturated fats, lipids of vegetable origin known as healthy as they contribute to increase "good" cholesterol, stabilize the heart rate or relieve inflammation, among other qualities. Also, this oil is rich in fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin A, D, K and E. Vitamin A is necessary for the growth of bones and soft tissues, helps the proper functioning of eyesight and prevents infections; Vitamin E, on the other hand, is antioxidant, cardioprotective, anti-tumor, etc. while vitamins D and K favor the absorption of calcium by the bones and help the blood to coagulate with the generation of red blood cells, respectively.

For the youngest members of the household, the consumption of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in meals entails, among other benefits, a better control of the weight in the infantile stage (40% of the children of our country are overweight).

Olives ... a superfood that you must include in your diet!!!

The concept of "superfood" is increasingly used by nutritionists, chefs and lovers of healthy living. Foods with a high concentration of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and healthy fats are known as superfoods. They are very interesting foods due to their nutritional potential and the benefits they bring to our health if we include them in our diet. Examples of superfoods are extra virgin olive oil, legumes, quinoa, broccoli, turmeric, ginger or avocado ..

The Mediterranean diet, for its variety and richness, includes some of these superfoods, and among them is the olive.

Do you know all the benefits of olives?

  • Ideal to prevent cardiovascular diseases, since they are useful for lowering high cholesterol (LDL) levels, thanks to the fact that they protect from the oxidation of bad cholesterol, preventing its hardening and accumulation in the arteries.
  • Rich in vitamins, water and minerals.
  • A perfect antioxidant to fight against body aging and oxidation.
  • The perfect appetizer, since they contain fewer calories than we have been led to believe and their high fiber intake makes them perfect for inclusion in diets to lose weight. Fiber also improves gastrointestinal health and improves constipation.
  • Help counteract anemia, due to its iron content.
  • Perfect for beauty treatments.

Recommendations for healthy consumption.

A balanced diet based on healthy food, exercise and water is essential for all the benefits to act in our body. The recommended daily intake of olives is a serving of about 5 to 7 olives.

Table olives harvesting campaign has started

Since the last days of September Montegil is busy with the new campaign, several weeks of work that we face with optimism.

The late rains and the beginning of summer with mild temperatures, has caused that this year, the olive harvesting campaign is delayed some weeks. Officially the campaign began on September 1, but the weather conditions of this spring / summer have caused the maturation of the green olive to be delayed. It has been in these last weeks when the green olive has reached its maximum size and its optimal state for harvesting.

The campaign begins with the harvest of the Queen olive variety, which is the first to be ready for collection and is followed by the Manzanilla variety. The olives destined to produce our extra virgin olive oil will be harvested during the month of November, the perfect moment to have one of the extra virgin oils with more quality and flavor of the market.

Once the olive is harvested, following the traditional method known as "verdeo", we are dedicated to selecting the best fruits, according to their size, color, state of maturation, etc. From this moment, olives are processed in order to be ready to prepare our fillings and seasoning of our olives, taking care of the whole process so that they retain all the flavor and nutritional properties of this nurishing fruit.

Montegil is pioneer in the use of PET heat sealing for the packaging of olives, technology that we also apply to other preserved vegetable foods, such as citrus, for domestic use or food service.
