Tortas de Aceite are a traditional Spanish crisp bread, light and flaky, made with over 25% Spanish olive oil. They are produced entirely by hand – each torta with its own distinctive hand-patted shape. Tortas de aceite have been made for over 100 years in the Seville region of Andalucia. The traditional sugared tortas are flavored with a touch of anise, while the savory option is ideal for serving with dips and spreads.
IMPORTANT PRODUCT QUALITY NOTICE: Each of these hand-made tortas contain over 25% virgin olive oil making them extremely sensitive to heat. Please store and display your tortas in a cool location away from any direct sunlight or heat.

Tortas Gaviño is a family business that has been making traditional pastries from Sevilla (in the region of Andalucia) for over 100 years. On principle, the company uses only natural ingredients and no artificial coloring or preservatives, and has become known for high quality delicious baked goods. Tortas Gaviño’s specialty is its homemade Tortas, which are made by hand, one by one – making no two tortas alike.
Dr. Andrés Gaviño, a pediatrician by profession, was very aware of the importance of a healthy diet and he incorporated this belief into the products he elaborated and sold. The house in which he was born had a baker’s oven that was used during the 19th century to produce olive oil pancakes. Over time, the family’s tradition of baking turned into a business as friends and neighbors clamored for their delicious high quality products.
Although the present-day company Tortas Gaviño now has a new modern facility, it still maintains the original spirit, and the company’s reputation is still based on the production of wholesome products with 100% natural ingredients.
