Alicia Serrano Gómez is an Agronomist and holds a Masters Degree in Olive Growing and Oil Technology. Her interest in the olive sector and olive oil is because she was born and raised in Priego de Córdoba, in the bosom of a family that for many generations has been fully dedicated to the cultivation of olive groves. 

Alicia has had the opportunity to work in research projects on olive oil in IFAPA research centers (The Institute of Agricultural Research and Training, Fisheries, Food and Organic Production in Andalusia). 

Currently Alicia is engaged as a quality manager in Mueloliva and is a training taster for the Tasting Panel of the Protected Designation of Origin from Priego de Córdoba.  

She is really passionate about her job and the possibility of defending the quality of extra virgin olive oils, which would be impossible without sensory analysis or tasting.
