The Extraction Of Olive Oil

Olives are pressed into olive oil in a variety of ways, either using traditional methods or new technology. In order to press citizen’s olives, some remote villages have community olive mills. They combine everyone’s olives together and share the olive oil. Huge numbers of olives are pressed industrially using new centrifuges and mechanical olive mills. There are five stages to processing olive oil. First it is washed, then crushed, then ground. It is then pressed and then strained to separate the water from the oil.
