Spanish importer and distributor Elayún del Trópico Húmedo has added a new selection of olives and a new extra virgin olive oil to the portfolio of foods from Spain it represents in Costa Rica.
Acenorca, an olive cooperative in Montehermoso, North of Cáceres, is the provider of black and green olives, also with stuffed versions. Black olives come from the Manzanilla Cacereña, an indigenous olive variety characterized by its firm and fine pulp, the low pulp-stone ratio, its texture once cured, and the pleasant taste on the palate. Green olives are from the Manzanilla variety.
Elayún has also introduced extra virgin olive oil Bonarbe, an Arbequina variety oil produced by Kel Grupo Alimentario in Rioja, which offers a very competitive market price. Whites wines from Rueda and VT Castilla-León reds from Bodegas deAlberto have also joined the Elayún family.
Elayún was founded in 2006 by Patricia Núñez Doval, a Spanish entrepreneur who already had experience in the food sector. The company reaches a broad universe of private consumers, restaurants, hotels, catering services, and gourmet and meat stores in Central America, focusing on very high-quality foods from Spain.
