The olives reaching in the olive press are checked carefully in their all stages of becoming oil. Afterwards defoliation and the washing we have the milling of oil - crop. Here the olives are crashed in two ( 2 ) stages ( precutting and final cutting ) for the evasion of thermic increases paste. This stage is very important because the high speeds and high temperatures that are developed instant by the cut, degrade most nutritiously and tasty characteristically of olive oil.

As soon as the granite millstones finish off the work milling follows the process of kneading. An electronic system PLC latest generation checks continuously the temperature in the walls of mixers in order that the paste do not exceed 27o C. Having it ensures completely cold elision paste it enters in the final stage of export of olive oil.
