Exceptional educational visit about the entire olive oil production process

We received a private visit from the Terra Creta Olive Oil Factory with Maria as our guide. She thoroughly detailed the entire production process from the canvases of the tree, the olive, the harvest to the production of the extra-virgin olive oil that we can find here in the supermarkets of the Colruyt group. On the basis of an olive oil tasting (!!) she taught us to taste the difference between different oils. In short, from now on a lot more olive oil (from Terra Creta !!) will be processed in our daily meals to replace other less healthy fats.

Very good insight into the olive oil production

We booked the tour as we already knew the oil from Terra Creta and were interested in where this came from. Maria has given us a very good insight into the production, cultivation and mining. Finally, the tasting was at the again reference to the "right tasting" and the quality differences was taken. Thank you for the beautiful experience and best regards from Hannover.
