A Turkish company specialized in the production of gourmet extra virgin olive oil is looking for distributors for their products in European countries. The extra virgin olive is produced from the olives of Aegean coast and comes in different sizes and packages.



The company is a family business with a long tradition in olives and olive oil for 50 years in Turkey. The cold extraction processing technique and short times between harvesting time and processing allow a low degree of acidity that allows to preserve all the organoleptic elements making the oil unique.

The olives harvested are immediately processed in a cutting edge oil mill, a plant with professional features in reduced dimensions. The oil-mill operates in a two-phases system and it produces oil without the use of vertical centrifugal separators. The mill is fully computerized: a software regulates all of the machine's parameters (including its temperature) and checks all its values.

The oil is stored in stainless steel containers in a cool, dark and dry room, at a temperature of between 6°-15° C. The product is packaged in matt and opaque glass bottles depends on the type of olive oil. Also it can be in plastic bottle of 5 liters if the product is addressed to catering or restaurant companies.

The company has good references in the local market and has steadily grown in the last few years.
