In SOTAM we believe that it is the preview of industry to invest in sustainable farming practices which are so essential to soil and plant protection.
The land’s natural vegetal ecosystem is essential to a healthy growing environment for olive trees. Care should be taken therefore to leave native plants and vegetal ground cover to flourish through sustainable farming techniques such as minimal/zero tillage.
This helps maintain nutrient-rich soil, defends native varieties and flavors, and improves the quality of olive oil in a responsible way. Additionally, it may contribute in much even larger way in the climate change fight

The manual harvesting of Tunisian indigenous olives offers a holistic and sustainable approach that is reflected in the exceptional quality of the produced olive oil.


Olive cultivation plays a significant role in Tunisian communities. The olive harvest, often carried out in a traditional and manual manner, generates seasonal employment, thereby strengthening social bonds within local communities. Moreover, the olive tree is deeply rooted in Tunisian culture, and the transmission of skills related to olive cultivation is an intergenerational tradition that contributes to the social and cultural fabric of the country. By promoting environmentally friendly farming practices and supporting local communities, olive cultivation in Tunisia embodies a delicate balance between preserving natural resources and social well-being.
