The company San Nicasio chips was established 1999 in Priego de Córdoba by Rafael del Rosal López and his wife Mª Carmen Osuna. Since the beginning, the target was developing a new concept of premium crisp, using state-of-the-art culinary techniques and the best ingredients in the world. San Nicasio potato chips are made with extra virgin olive oil from the Almazaras de la Subbética (Olive Oil Mills), a cooperative that has Priego de Córdoba’s Guarantee of Origin and Quality (Denomination de Origen – the national accreditation system which regulates high-quality olive oil), cold pressed oil that is the natural juice of the region’s olives. The oil from the Almazaras de la Subbética have won prestigious international awards. The oil used for San Nicasio potato chips comes from a blend of the picudas, picuales and hojiblancas varieties of olives, is golden green in colour, very fruity and aromatic. Abutting the Almazaras de la Subbética, Patatas San Nicasio gets its oil directly, without the need for transport, decanting or long storage periods which could negatively affect its quality. In this way, all the organoleptic properties of the best extra virgin olive oil are intact and are absorbed in San Nicasio potato chips.
