Who we are

Since 1994, the publishing group Mercacei-Edimarket Editores specializes in the production of professional publications for the olive oil, table olives and olive growing sectors. Although we love all of our products in the same way we have to admit that Olivatessen by Mercacei is the apple of our eye.

Maybe because it’s our most recent launch or just because we have created it with so much faith and emotion, we are totally in love with this peculiar magazine. We strive to create the best publication dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of the culture of extra virgin olive oil and value its major players, its producers.

In reality, Olivatessen intends to be a tribute to those brave men and women and to the culture of extra virgin olive oil which is as exciting as unknown. And, although we are not trying to be elitist, we consider worth showing and discovering the best Premium EVOOs that are produced worldwide.

Made up by professionals with extensive experience in the food industry, our team also features the contributions of leading experts and collaborators which are also extra virgin olive oil lovers, because what we are clear about is that the best magazine has to be made by the best team.

An undisputed leader in its segment, the Group currently has five publications that make it possible to provide all sector operators with the best informational tools for the optimal development of their professional activity, facilitating the decision making process:
