Appetizers are seen as emblematic of “French art de vivre” all over the world. More than ¾ of French people have them at least once a month during the summer and 66% the rest of the year. The appetizer sector is booming and the fashion of eating light snacks with drinks is gradually replacing dinner, which means that tapas and small sharing plates borrowed from the Iberian tradition are becoming all the rage. And obviously, olives have a very important part to play in this.

The top producer of table olives, Spain offers a wide range of all varieties of olives, produced in accordance with strict quality standards, including traditional varieties passed down over centuries of growing.
