Contract Olive Processing

The Franschhoek Olive Oil Company offers contract processing to other olive growers in Franschhoek during the season. This offers the grower a chance to produce their own olive oil without the expense of purchasing an olive press. Milling is offered by prior arrangement to ensure that the olives are processed as soon as possible upon reaching the olive mill to ensure the best quality olive oil. All olives will be processed within 24 hours of arrival using our state of the art Italian olive press and following the same process we use to ensure the quality of the extra virgin olive oil.

The olives are washed and then crushed before being slowly mixed to help release the oil from the paste and then processed through a decanter to extract the oil. A strict process is adhered to that ensures our olive oil is truly extra virgin, with no additives and no additional processing – only a first cold extraction from the olives that ensures the very finest extra virgin olive oil.

The oil will be stored under ideal conditions and racked into storage tanks. Oil can be filtered if required at an additional cost. The olive oil will then be transferred into the customers’ containers. Containers are to be supplied by the customer when delivering the olives or we can provide containers if required. We also offer a bottling service and can deliver the oil in 500ml olive oil bottles.
