Founder of the first blog in Spanish El Olivar, Honorary President of CULTURE OLIVE.
Born in the land of 300 million olive trees in Spain, Tanguy Pâris created in 2005, so to speak naturally, the blog “El olivar, noticias del aceite de oliva” (The olive grove, olive oil newsletter).
simply to promote an accounting management software for oil mills. It is finally another professional path that he will follow, far away from the olive fields… His blog, acclaimed, leads him to pursue this adventure almost in spite of himself. Taken by a growing interest in olive oil and the olive growing professions, he decided to perpetuate this hobby, which had become a passion, then a skill, in order to offer support to olive growers through his window on the net.
