Sowing the seeds
Miguel had such a strong affinity for olive oil that in the 1940s he moved to Seville to start buying and leasing oil mills in the highest-producing provinces, from Seville and Cadiz to Toledo.
In 1946, his business made a further leap up the value chain when he bought an olive oil and soap factory, with a refinery and a small bottling plant in the province of Seville
It was here that Miguel and his wife Dolores decided to put down roots and start a family, to whom he would later pass on his knowledge and passion for the countryside and the oil culture.
1950 – 1970
Branching out the family business
In the 1950s, Miguel and his brother bought an olive pomace oil refinery and extraction plant in La Luisiana (Seville), expanding their business line into pomace oil.
Over the course of the 1960s and 1970s, his sons gradually joined the family business, a key moment when Miguel Gallego decided to expand it, buying a new refinery in Dos Hermanas (Seville), allowing him to train each of his sons in the different sectors of the olive oil and seed oil industry.
