Extra Virgin Olive Oils
Oilve Oil Extraction
The oil is extracted by cold pressing in the Almazara El Amarillo, Casupá, just 12 km from our plantation, a few hours after the harvest. The equipment is branded OLIO MIO, with the capacity to process up to 500 kg/h, it is Italian technology, made by the company MORI-TEM (Toscana Enologica Mori), to produce high quality extra virgin olive oil.
The oil is kept for 3 days in a settling steel tank for the removal of the greatest impurities, and finally mechanically filtered with cellulose filters, to be preserved in LAINOX stainless steel tanks, imported from Italy, owned by our company.
The filtering operation, eliminating the smaller impurities and the water content still present among the oil molecules, gives the product greater stability, without losing its organoleptic characteristics.
The oil is sold in 3 different packages:
250 mL bottles
500 mL bottles
3 L Bag-in-Box
The Bag-in-Box (BIB) system, used in Europe for the sale of products sensitive to light, oxygen, or any form of contact with unsuitable plastic materials, prevents oxidation processes (formation of peroxides) and the consequent increase in acidity and loss of organoleptic properties.
The BIB allows the consumer to save on the purchase of containers (fewer bottles) and preserve the quality of the oil (PET plastic drum are not suitable).
The tap allows to extract, in a practical and simple way, the quantity of oil that is needed, without funnels, keeping the product under vacuum. In addition, dimensions and shape of the cardboard box allow it to be easily stored.
Finally, producer and consumer take care of the environment, consistently limiting waste production.
