FROM TEXTILE TO OLIVES
Serpis began in Alcoy in the 1920’s, a city then renowned for its booming textile industry. Cándido Miró Rabasa was a textile businessman from this city, and it was around this time that his interest in a different venture came to fruition: the manufacturing of anchovy-stuffed olives.
Of course, anchovy-stuffed olives were already a common appetizer, with each olive carefully pitted and stuffed with anchovies by hand. Cándido, however, industrialized the process of stuffing and packaging, and by 1926, he had a pitting machine. Without sacrificing quality and taste, Serpis Olives has grown, with innovations in technology and manufacturing processes. And today, they are one of the leading names in the olive industry.
