What are the competitive advantages of Goya table olives?
The only acid added to our green olives is lactic acid, which is the same acid found in the olives naturally during the fermentation process.
We don’t add any other acids like other brands that use others like ascorbic and citric acid. These acids give the olives a more yellowish appearance. Nor do they add any preservatives as the products have already been pasteurized. We also don’t add any glutamate or aromas.
The only exception to this rule are our Capers and Alcaparrado, both traditional and Reduced Sodium which rather than lactic acid have added acetic acid to improve the flavor.
Unlike other brands, the pepper used by Goya in our alcaparrado and salad olives is top quality natural roasted pepper.
Normally, and what other brands use is pepper paste, the ingredients of which include guar gum, sodium alginate and only a small percentage of pepper.
The varieties of pepper used by Goya in these preparations are Morrón and California. They are delivered to the Goya factory in 180 kg barrels and are conserved in 22% brine.

What are capers?
GOYA® Capers are the closed flower bud of the Capparis Spinosa or caper bush, a wild and thorny plant native to the countries of the Mediterranean arc. From the caper shrub, many branches grow from the central trunk, interspersing leaves with capers (they have a similar appearance to that of a bulb). Unharvested capers turn into flowers.
The superior quality of GOYA® Capers work over the course of the entire production process and this is what gives them such a divine flavor.
Starting with their selection and harvesting, GOYA® capers are collected by hand between late spring and early summer, always selecting the calibers of greater quality. This strict control is maintained throughout the production and packaging process to ensure a premium gastronomic experience for our customers.
At Goya España we only pack the sizes that provide the highest quality, which are: Nonpareilles Capers (up to 7 millimeters diameter) and Capote Capers (diameter of between 9 and 11 millimeters). The younger the flower is and the smaller it is, the better texture and flavor it will have.
