We tell you a little about us

Our History

KUMAfood was founded by Chrétien P. Schatorie and José Miguel Cocera Cruz, like many companies or great ideas are born; having a wine under the sun shade, while a light Spring drizzle sprinkled the garden floor.

José is from Quesada, a charming Andalusian town in the Sierra de Cazorla, where olive trees grow to an unmatched height compared to the rest of Spain. Pairing this circumstance with the unique climate and geology of the area, the Picual and Royal olive trees produce a superior quality olive oil, winner of several international tasting awards.

Direct contact from the source of our products in addition to Chrétien’s knowledge of foreign trade and food products (Dutch by birth, although from Salamanca at heart) we decided to undertake the adventure of exporting the oil from Quesada to Northern Europe.

Success did not take long to manifest itself, and in several weeks we added almost 20 Mi Rincón Ibérico outlets to our portfolio, including several restaurants, such as Rue du Bois in Venlo and renown specialty shops like Jardin d’Olive in EIndhoven, to name a few.

They not only asked us for more and more oil, but also for other Spanish products, such as smoked paprika powder, saffron and sausages.
