Advantages of bag-in-box packaging:
One of the main advantages of bag-in-box packaging is its environmental friendliness. Both the box and bag components are recyclable, making it a highly recyclable option with a low environmental impact.
The inner bag is composed of multiple layers and is free of phthalates and pollutants, ensuring a safe and clean packaging solution.
Bag-in-box packaging helps keep the enclosed EVOO in optimal conditions. The hermetic seals effectively protect the oil from light, high temperatures, and oxidation, thus preserving the product in excellent condition for an extended period.
Moreover, this packaging method ensures that all the physico-chemical and organoleptic characteristics of the extra virgin olive oil remain intact for a longer duration.
The two-litre format of bag-in-box packaging includes a tap, providing the convenience of easy and hygienic dispensing.
The hexagon shape, found in natural phenomena such as beehives, basalt, insect eyes, foam, and snowflakes, represents the complexity and wisdom of the environment. This same shape is now embodied in the new Bag-in-Box Deortegas! Deortegas Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oils are sourced directly from nature, creating an unbreakable bond with it.

The Picual olives are one of the most cultivated varieties of Spain. The olive oil extracted from Picual olives has a medium aromatic profile with pleasant notes of tomato, fig tree, olive leaf, and freshly cut grass. Its oil is also well known for its strong bitter- and spiciness. It is often mixed with other oil to soften its bitterness and enhance its fruity flavor. Thanks to its stability the olive oil extracted from Picual olive has a long shelf life and makes it stable for cooking or frying.
