Their aim is towards health and environmental protection, guaranteeing organic oil of an exceptional flavour, free from any synthetic chemicals, fertilisers or genetically modified organisms.

Oleic acid, the nutritional quality measurement of the oil, is between 81 and 82.4%. High contents in natural antioxidants (800 mg of polyphenols per kg of oil in 2018), which confers them a great resistance against oxidation, stability of high nutritional values and cancer prevention. Daily cold pressing within 5 hours after harvesting the fruit, it guarantees high contents in natural anti-oxidants.
