Olive oil is one of the most precious products in Greece with high quality standards and specifications. The olive tree had a sacred place amongst other plants in ancient Greece and all athletes who won an Olympic title were crowned with an olive twig. Additionally, the olive oil was probably the first branded agricultural product in ancient world and the olive tree was the tree of peace. Today, over 600,000 families earn their living from olive oil production, producing 300,000 tons annually which averages almost 18% of the world’s production. QFarm production can reach to 60,000 tons per annum by 2016, that will constitute the tomorrow’s leader of Greek olive oil industry.
OLIVE OIL PRODUCTION PROCESS: QFood olive oil production is made with an exceptional care, respecting production times. To make this exceptional olive oil we can follow the method we are going to describe below. This is the most modern to make olive oil. With this method olives have to be grinded the same day they are harvested, otherwise, as olives have vegetal water, this ferments and olive oil oxidizes. It is necessary to indicate that the olives storage time spoils notably the quality of the final product.
