Olive oil mill
The aim of grinding is to break the fruit of the olive so that the olive oil drops are released. We grind the olives immediately after their harvest so that they do not mature. The procedure is completed slowly in order to avoid any increase in temperature.
The crushing of the olive fruit is done in our modern olive oil mills, using the method of cold press. In this way, we have the ability to constantly monitor the production procedure at any given time.
The storage of the olive oil is completed in stainless steel containers, with a capacity of …..tons, and is maintained at a stable temperature. The olive oil refines its own humidity, sediment and other foreign elements, which accumulate at the bottom of the containers and are removed over short periods of time.
All the procedures are completed with extra care so that the maintenance of the vitamin and aromatic qualities of the olive oil are guaranteed.
Bottling and Packaging
We chose glass bottles, since glass is an excellent material for the maintenance of olive oil. It is see-through, which allows us to admire the exceptional green colour. We package it in boxes and thus avoid possible quality loss due to light or heat exposure.
The bottling is done once an order has been placed so as to achieve the shortest possible time period between bottling and consumption.
All machines used in the process are made of stainless steel. Stainless steel holds the highest spot in the food industry, since it has high mechanical and erosion resistance, which means no possibility of particle release.
