Olive oil extraction & Olive oil mill

At the beginning of 20th century (1904) the oil – press functioned only with two stones, which pressed the olives by the assistance of hourses. In 1955 the first mechanic- shatter and the first seperator were established. In 1977 the decantair was established which works in three phases. In 1993 the centrifugal of the 2 phases was established.

In 2003 the new contemporary factory was created. The oil- press is now ecological and produces the extra virgin olive oil by the ”koroneiki” olive variety- the best olives quality of the world.

Our factory spans over 4.000,00 m2 on a privately owned land, located 20kms from Kalamata, in the Southern part of mainland Greece. The total surface area of industrial space is 1500 m2, which includes offices, storage facilities and a production area.
