A NEW ERA IN OIL EXTRACTION
OLIOMIO! "My Oil"
new era in olive oil extraction has begun. The machine which engineers
have been trying to produce for decades is now a reality. You can
now produce extra virgin olive oil at home in an efficient, hygienic,
economical machine. This means that you can value add your olive
product by picking, processing and bottling it, with your
For reasons of hygiene, and for its major labour saving benefits, the continuous flow centrifugal oil extraction process has long been recognised as the ultimate method for the production of high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Unfortunately, because of traditional thinking, the romance of the old oil presses, and the high cost of the newer continuous flow systems, the changeover has been slow.
The growers in the Mediterranean countries have been accustomed to hauling their warm, sometimes fermenting, sacks of olives to the local factory. They've been used to helping through the day with the crushing of fruit and the spreading of the paste onto the circular mats. They're acquainted with the excitement of seeing the vegetable water and oil squeezed out through the mats by the huge hydraulic press
... but today it is different.
Today, the grower is asked to harvest the fruit and deliver it to the oil factory quickly to reduce overheating and fermentation problems. Today, after arrival at the factory in hygienic crates, the healthy fruit disappears into a hospital-clean stainless steel machine and then reappears out the other end as golden olive oil in excellent condition ... no romance, no helping in the process and no seeing the oil and water being squeezed out.
Even the owners of the traditional oil processing factories have been up in arms because although the new system is far more cost effective on labour and far superior hygienically, the cost of changing systems has been prohibitive.
continuous flow plant capable of processing 1,000 kg of olive
fruit per hour costs around $300,000.
growers who wanted to produce their own oil at home have been excluded
from using this latest technology because of the absence of a small
continuous flow plant at a reasonable price. They too have been
forced to use a smaller version of the traditional press for a cost
of about $20,000 or more.
good news is that things have changed. There is now
a small scale, reasonably priced, hygienic, continuous flow oil
plant on the market.
Oliomio 350 Processing Facility at Olive Agencies
The beautifully designed, all stainless steel "OLIOMIO" (which means "My Oil" in Italian), automatically processes thirty kilograms of olive fruit per hour into golden olive oil. Being a continuous flow plant, it is "olives in at one end and golden oil out the other." The total machine is only 150cm high, 130cm wide and 80cm deep, which means it can fit nicely into any spare room or garage. And they start at just A$19,500 including GST and delivery to your door. (within Australia). As well as installation and training by our TEM factory trained technician.
small olive growers can say this is "Oliomio" (My Oil!)
... clean, hygienic, and of excellent character ... and the
only labour required is to tip the olives in, make a couple of adjustments,
then go away to do other things while the golden oil trickles

Agencies was established. Olive Agencies will follow the Statement
of Mission as it supplies high quality, affordable equipment for
pruning, harvesting and processing to the long neglected small to
