As we know, olive oil is a fruit juice and contains many antioxidants that are very beneficial to health. Although these antioxidants differ from the cultivars of olive, they are found in olive oil more or less in a relation to the timing and technique of production. The most important fact here is that the olives to be pressed and turned into olive oil in the shortest time after harvest.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case in California and most of the other places where olives grow. The olives are harvested and moved to a factory mill to be pressed within 12-24 hours at best.
And now we have reversed this fact to convert the best olives into the highest quality olive oil. We have created a mobile facility to produce the best quality, freshest, and highest antioxidant-containing olive oils.
We developed what we believe is the most exciting food project of all time, wherein we have designed, financed and built a mobile mill fully equipped with state of the art olive processing equipment from Tuscany, to drive the vehicle directly into the California olive groves, harvest and ‘press’ up to 500kg of olives per hour, and ultimately, within seconds, deliver the freshest, finest, highest in polyphenol antioxidants extra-virgin olive oil in all the world.
We started our operation in October 2019 by launching a mobile oil processing unit that allows manufacturing high-quality, extra-fresh olive oil on the olive fields. This mobile production facility, the Olive Truck, will allow to cold-press and bottle local varieties of California olives within an hour of harvesting, thus capturing the true essence of their flavor and preserving all their nutrients.
The first section is the olive reception area, equipped with a fruit bin, leaf-removal machine, washing and crushing units.
The second section is the processing area and houses the machinery for malaxer, decanter, filtration and packing,
The third section contains the generator and water supply tank.
Since the processing section is a food handling area, it is protected from temperature changes, dust and smells and equipped with air conditioning, isolation and filtered ventilation systems to ensure hygienic conditions.
