Youssef Gardam

At the origins of a passion

Youssef Gardam, a Franco-Moroccan aged 22 at the time, decided, following medical studies, to devote himself fully to a passion rooted in his genes: olive oil.

In the Gardam family, olive oil has been a tradition for several generations, an everyday dish, a delicacy steeped in its history.

Construction of the mill

Youssef Gardam began building the mill on his grandparents' ancestral lands.

Wishing to develop a particular architecture, blending into the desert landscape and dotted with olive trees, a white building will be born.

And stone by stone, wall by wall, piece by piece, the construction of a 2000 square meter building came into being.

The Terroirs of Volubilis

The birth of an exceptional vintage

Once the production unit is operational, Youssef Gardam works for days, months, to design the purest possible olive oil, which will denote Moroccan olive oil as consumers know it. at the time.

Les Terroirs des Volubilis was born, an olive oil in homage to his grandfather, represented on the latter's label, under his favorite olive tree.
