When the olives reach the right degree of ripeness, they are picked and immediately taken for cold pressing in a dependablecontinuous-cycle olive press in Moscufo. This processing method enhances the quality of the oil and the sensorial and nutritional qualities remain intact. Meticulous hygiene during production and attention when storing the oil ensures these qualities are safeguarded over time.
