O-Med is a small olive mill based in Ácula (Granada). At O-Med they combine their passion for extra virgin olive oils and vinegars which has been passed down through four generations of the family from the work, experience and traditions from Juan de Dios who founded the company.
At O-Med they control all aspects of the production process from the harvesting to bottling in the knowledge that this is the best way to guarantee the quality of their products. The olives are harvested early so that they are rich in aromas with complex flavours.
In order to create these wonderful flavours they use innovative techniques:-
To avoid oxidation they conserve their oils with nitrogen
Olive stones are used to produce energy, thereby making the mill they use sustainable
Cold extraction no higher than 20ºC (69ºF) to ensure the flavour remains pure
Use of glass and recyclable packaging in all of their containers
