SPANISH ROOTS AND GLOBAL MINDSET,
A LEGACY OF FOUR GENERATIONS

Tradition
The wisdom of four generations

PONS products are the legacy of a family which, after four generations since 1945, expresses its Mediterranean Spirit through passion for the land and mastery in making its products.

"From arbequina olives and from this land
comes the best Olive oil in the world"
Joan Pons (second generation)

Our Roots
From bulk to the PONS brand

Grup PONS is a result of its exporting spirit as initially it exported oil in bulk, largely to Italy. Due to the experience of its founders, in 1996 the group decided to add value to this fine product by packaging at source.
A company with vision for the future, the strength of internationality and the know-how of family tradition.

Grup Pons

The product line of Grup PONS has had worldwide recognition for its quality in more than 140 countries spread throughout the five continents, such as the United States subsidiary,
Casa PONS USA Inc.
Our Head Quarters and farms are located in Lleida (west of Barcelona) – Catalonia

Our Mission

The passion and respect for the soil give the excellence to PONS products. The Arbequina olives are harvested both manually and with a mechanical comb, following all of the parameters of Ecological farming and always respecting the environment.

The methods utilized give us the guarantee that we are producing an olive oil with excellent organoleptic properties and a quality that satisfies the most demanding customers.

"Today we are sharing in every bottle of Pons Olive Oil
the same perfume and flavor that our ancestors enjoyed long time ago."
Eduard Pons (fourth generation)
