For more than two centuries, passion and commitment to agriculture have defined the traditions of the Aqallal family in the ancient city of Fez. The Aqallal family produces extra virgin oils from the finest selection of olives using the most advanced extraction process.
The first mill of the Aqallal family was located in Fez, the historic town of Morocco and spiritual capital of the Kingdom, where it has been turning olives into extra virgin olive oil for more than a century. Today Agro Health enjoys an international reputation.
In November 2008 Atlas Olive Oils, a branch of Agro Health, was awarded the Environment and Sustainable Development Award by SIFEL 2008 (Agadir Agricultural trade show, Morocco).
In May 2009, Atlas Olive Oils won the MARIO SOLINAS Award (presented by the International Olive Council) as the 3rd best olive oil in the world for the year 2009.
The June 2009 edition of the German magazine Der Feinschmecker selected Atlas Olive oils as being among the top 50 olive oils in the world (the preliminary selection included 1800 olive oils).
In June 2009 Atlas Olive Oils was awarded the Grand Mention Diploma at the XVIII international LEONE D’ORO DEI MASTRI OLEARI competition in Italy. The Desert Miracle olive oil was in competition with the best Italian, Spanish and Greek olive oils.
