Olive farms are one of the fastest-growing agribusiness sectors in Uruguay thanks to the country’s perfect combination of geography, temperature, soil and water resources. Over 15,000 acres of olive trees have been planted in the past few years as more foreign investors begin to realize Uruguay’s potential for producing quality olives and Extra Virgin olive oil.
Uruguay is located in the Southern Hemisphere’s equivalent of the Mediterranean Basin where many believe the finest olives are grown between the 33rd and 42nd parallel. Uruguay has the added advantage of receiving more rainfall annually than countries like Greece, Italy and Spain.
