The Cooperative “SCA San Marcos” was founded in 1927. It is located in the village of Canena, placed at the centre of the province of Jaén, in the region of Andalusia (South of Spain) and just in the middle of the most productive area of olive oil all over the world.

The Cooperative was created to meet the needs of small and medium-size farmers of Canena. From the very beginning, olive oil was produced with the traditional pressing system, undertaking different changes all throughout the decades, and significantly changing to two-phase extracting system just at the end of the last century, in 1990.
