The Olive Oil
Olive oil is a vegetable oil mainly for culinary use that is extracted from the fruit of the olive tree (olea europaea). Almost one third of the pulp of an olive is oil and, for this reason, since ancient times it has been easily extracted with a simple pressure exerted by a mill.

The oils are produced with great attention, using quality fruits and following a clean, well-regulated manufacturing process that gives us a variety of nuances and extraordinary connotations.
