Olive groves are a group of olive trees which are grown in such a way that their growth is assisted by the mother nature itself and the cultivation and maturation of the olive is achieved at the optimum level. Moreover, arrangement of olive grooves is also kept in a way so that it makes mechanical and hand picking of olives super easy and efficient.
At La Maja, the main variety of olive trees which is cultivated is ARBEQUINA and small amount of other varieties are also cultivated like Picual, Empeltre, Arbosana and Koroneiki. Oil is extracted from two types of fruits:
- From green olives of only ARBEQUINA variety
- From ripe olives, 75% of ARBEQUINA and rest from other varieties
Olives are collected by full mechanical means to prevent direct contact between the fruit and the ground by falling, which if happens will lead to oxidation and deterioration. Fruits are immediately sent to the mill and are processed within 12 hours of collection to avoid inappropriate changes in the fruit as they are prone to oxidation.

Olive Oil Production
Oil extracted from olives depends entirely upon the variety of trees, soil, climate, health of the crop and the maturity level, as these all elements play crucial role in defining the flavor, aroma and color of EVOO. The general composition of the olive which is harvested contains:
- Oil: 15- 30%
- Water: 40- 55%
- Plant tissues and bone: 23- 35%
Following main steps are involved in the olive oil production at La Maja’s mills:
In reception, the first step is cleaning and temporary storage of the olives after which they are sent for grinding. When the olives reach the olive press, sieve and fan installments eliminate the leaves, twigs and poor quality olives from the healthy olives, and badges are formed.
After the separation of unwanted objects, washing is carried out of each badge by spraying water, which removes the dust and dirt followed by the weighing procedure. Then on hoppers, washed olives are set where they enter the grinding or the feed mill portion.
In this step, oil is extracted from the olives by shaking and grinding. A stainless steel mil of hammers, crushes the olives. After crushing and grinding, a paste is obtained which contains fruit water, pulp and skin of the fruit. Then this paste is beaten and remixed at constant temperature below 27ºC to ensure the prevention of oxidation. This step is also known as cold press.
Centrifugation is carried out after cold press, which separates the oil from the rest of the mass. At low temperature and high speed, this step is done to preserve not only the amount of all the olive oil, but also the required quality.
After centrifugation, extra virgin olive oil is ready to consume.
Stainless steel containers at a constant low temperature of 18 to 20ºC along with the continual nitrogen supply are installed, in these containers extracted olive oil is stored. The purpose of modified atmosphere is to maintain an inert atmosphere with no contact of air and external light.
Extra virgin olive oil is then filled in bottles and cans as per requirement.
