Bafa Tarim Ltd. - The Olive Oil Co.
In the plant, 50 metric tonnes of olive were processed and 12 tonnes of olive oil were obtained in 2001-2002 period although that year was an 'empty' year for olive harvest. In the 2002-2003 period, processed olive amount exceeded 900 tonnes. In the next season, which is another 'off' year for olive harvest, 60 tonnes of olive oil was produced. The last season, the olive oil produced is about 190 tonnes. The full production capacity of plant is about 1400 tonnes of olive oil. But, this capacity has not been reached in last years because of climate and other local factors. Our goal is to reach the full production capacity in the years to come.
The main ojective of the company is to produce high quality extra virgin olive oil. However, according to the nature of the olive oil production, some virgin and lampante olive oil are also produced. Hopefully, adopting the modern approaches to olive growing and picking supports to increase the EVOO/lampante ratio year to year.
