After six generations of working in oil, Reficesur has been founded as a modern-minded company yet one faithful to its principles as a family firm.
Reficesur has the flavour of more than a century and a half of oil-making tradition inherited from Vicente Aguado Jiménez (the man who founded Aceites Aguado y Cía in 1835) and in which we have always had the same purpose; to market the oil made in the local area.
The entrepreneurial drive of Jacinto Aguado Fariñas, one of his descendants, led him to site the company in Yuncos in Toledo province, thus giving rise to one of the Spanish firms with the longest tradition in the production of olive oils and which is now managed by his grandson, Jacinto Aguado Sánchez, who preserves the tradition unbroken.
Since then we have used the fruit of our olive groves and the purest methods from over 150 years ago to make the finest olive oil with all of Reficesur’s experience and guarantees, and we have also extended our business project to over 20 countries on the five continents where the Paula Aguado brand is sold.
Reficesur has over 50,000 square metres of floor space in an ideal location in the commercial and communications centre of Spain.
In our facilities we produce, refine, manufacture, pack and separate pastes (oleins). This is the only way to get the best product by being involved in every stage of the production process up to the final sale.
We have an up to date refinery equipped with cutting-edge technology, which has a production capacity of 150 tons per day, plus two separate fully automated packing plants with a capacity of 30,000 tons per year.
In addition, we have set up a fully equipped laboratory with the latest in food analysis technology which monitors the quality and authenticity of the products that are sold.
On the sales side, our large team of foreign trade specialists attends the major international events, which makes us into one of the leading export companies in the country.
The main markets for our oils are China, Russia, the USA and Latin America which account for 40% of exports, with the rest going to European Union countries.
Our values define the character of our company, our products and our service and are the guiding principle of our organisation.
We act with integrity, honesty and respect for all the people and organisations with which we interact and the environment in which we operate.
Teamwork is the basis of all our relationships. We work together with our customers, suppliers, partners and allies in the collective and shared pursuit of excellence.
We strive to be leaders not only in our business but also in all our relationships. We are a company with a vision of the future that is based on innovation, excellence, sustainability and social responsibility.
