Thallon’s special way of production begins with the careful management of cultivation. The harvesting period is chosen in order to achieve the maximum concentration of polyphenols in the final product. Thus, the olives are collected unripe (green). Harvesting is entirely hand picked, so that the olive fruit is not injured. Then, the olive fruits pass through careful sorting, where leaves and inappropriate fruits are removed. Olive oil extraction takes place no later than 24 hours after the harvest. The harvested olives are transported to the mill in perforated crates, where they are initially washed with drinking water and then olive oil extraction follows, which is done mechanically. We follow procedures that are applied in an exemplary and meticulous manner, aiming the production of high quality olive oil.
OLIVE OIL EXTRACTION
The olive oil extraction is done mechanically, without the addition of water, and at ambient temperature, i.e. from 20ºC to 27ºC, temperatures prevailing in September in Halkidiki, Greece. Then, the product is transported and stored in INOX tanks, suitable for storing food. Thus, the early harvest olive oil is stored at a constant and low temperature (15 ° C to 18 ° C) in the absence of oxygen, light and humidity until standardization and bottling. At that point, we should note that it is stored in a single tank, from where all samples are sent for analysis, certifications, organoleptic tests and tasting competitions.
