The oil presses
The production of olive oil is conducted by means of natural methods in our own modern oil presses under strictly observed low thermal and sanitary conditions, while the time between the harvesting and the crushing of the olive fruit is reduced to minimum, so that its nutrients, its golden green color and its fruity taste are not altered.
The olive oil is stored in stainless tanks with a capacity of 1,500 tons kept in a privately owned facility under monitored environmental conditions, so that its qualitative characteristics can be retained unaltered.
The bottling process
Our company possesses its own olive oil bottling plant with a capacity of 1,500 bottles of 750ml per hour and 350 containers of 5l per hour, where all safety and sanitary regulations are met, so that we are able to offer a healthy product to the consumer.
