Responsible farming

As a 100% Farmer Owned company, we take pride in producing olive oil that is ethically sourced and creates shared value, all while keeping our high-quality offerings delicious, nutritious and affordable.

Pompeian’s partner, DCOOP, the world’s largest olive oil cooperative made up of family farmers, shares our values of ensuring our farmers and craftsmen receive fair prices for their crops and have a voice as they act as stakeholders. We work directly with farmers to achieve full transparency and consistency in the quality of Pompeian products as we share an integrated sourcing model from tree to bottle.

Pompeian supports smart water use
and innovation

reduced
water use

Our farmers are committed to reducing their water use, leveraging best-in-class technology to ensure they make the most out of every single drop. We actively embrace new research in this field, adopting innovative techniques, such as flyover and drone imagery, in order to minimize our water use and reduce evaporation. In Spain, a majority of our farms are irrigated in the traditional method, relying solely on rainwater.

We invest in research and new technology

We’re investing in resources to help our farmers grow their crops under carefully monitored conditions, which aid in protecting the groves, the olives and the environment. In Spain, our farmers work closely with DCOOP’s agricultural technicians, ensuring we’re making key optimizations to our practices in order to support smart, mindful farming that reduces our water and energy use. As a result, we’re able to harvest the olives at the peak of their natural goodness to preserve the vitality of the grove and the olives’ rich supply of antioxidants.
