OLIVE OIL FACTORY – GRANADA SIERRA NEVADA
The idea of this great company came from a person with extensive experience in the business world and after a study of the current situation, he decided to start a new business journey with a clear objective: to elaborate and produce the best virgin olive oil extra from the market. Now, this company is dedicated on milling olives to obtain olive oil, for sale in bulk or packaging.
The company is situated in Sierra Nevada just 1 km from Granada. Sierra Nevada is a beautiful mountainous place located in Andalucía in the province of Granada, although in its eastern part it extends to the province of Almería. It is the highest mountain massif in Western Europe, after the Alps.
In 1986 it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and in 1999 a large part of its territory was declared a national park for its botanical, landscape and natural values.
The traditional economic activities of the people who live around the Sierra Nevada have historically been agriculture and animal breeding. The abundance of water, especially in the western part of the massif, has given facilities to traditional agriculture.
The main product made by this company is the ‘’aceite de oliva virgen’’, which has many varieties, besides from other products such as its by-products and residues as its essentially pomace.
The main work in the oil mill is carried out in the olive harvesting campaign, which is made up of three periods.
- From November to mid-December, under normal conditions, the variety of extra virgin olive oil ”picual” and ”manzanilla” is obtained.
- From mid-December to mid-February, virgin olive oil is obtained.
- From mid-February to the end of the season, lampante oil is obtained.
