Oliva Tobacco Growers, Oliva Cigar Makers

I'd made the assumption that they were one and the same.
Under one of the Oliva cigar descriptions on The CI website they mentioned that they are different.

Can someone elaborate?

I think it is all part of the same organization. They are a large grower who supply many manufacturers. In addition, they keep (or transact internally) some of their own leaf for their own manufacturing operation. Nestor Plasencia has a similar operation.

They are different families and companies. I'm not sure if they are related, but I think they are not. There is Olivia Cigar Company and Olivia Tobacco Company.
