Olive Oils, Table Olives, Vinegar and Piri Piri Sauces

Gallo olive oils was founded in 1860 in Abrantes, interior of central Portugal . In 1919 became a trademark due to the recognition of the olive oil with a very singular flavor and unique taste.

The owner, Mr. Victor Guedes decided the name “Gallo” ( Portuguese name for rooster ) when he woe up on morning and opened his bedroom windows while the rooster was crowing.
