In MasVida, we also produce oil. We recovered the olive tree crop and, little by little, we've managed to plant over than 4.000 olive trees from the varieties Manzanilla, Picual, Argudell and Arbequina. We produce about 20.000 quilos of olives that have a yield of 18,5% and make more than 3.800 litres per year. We pick the olives in december, we take them to the mill and there, through a cold press and using mechanical processes, the virgin oil MasVida is extracted.
Sharing MasVida oil is one of our future projects. We hope to do it soon in order you can enjoy this little treasure at home!
