Step 3 – In the oil mill

Washing
Milling:  We grind and break up the olive to allow us to draw out the oil it contains.
Malaxation:  We malaxe the paste obtained in the mill to assist the extraction of oil.
Centrifuge:  By rotating the pulp at a high speed, we separate the marc, water and oil according to their different densities./p>

The olive oil must be preserved in storage in inert material, protecting it from its great enemies: high temperature and light.

Positioning of the bottle, glass blowing, filtration, filling, sealing, labelling, and storage.
