Farm to Bottle
Our farmers cultivate the olives for Origin 846 using the same sustainable farming methods as their ancestors.
Origin 846’s olives are not treated with chemicals or additives, and are always single-source. Once the olives ripen, they are carefully handpicked with only the best selected for cold pressing. They are then transported to our mills within hours of harvest, where they are inspected by Quality Assurance. Our master millers then lightly wash, sort and first cold-press them. The first cold-pressing of the olives separates them into three different components; unfiltered extra virgin olive oil, water and olive paste. The water is sent back to our farms to irrigate our orchards, the olive paste is used to create olive pomace oil including other by-products such as soap, cosmetics and green charcoal.
What makes Origin 846 truly unique is the process by which the unfiltered extra virgin olive oil is decanted.
Once the fresh unfiltered extra virgin olive oil has passed all the necessary quality control tests, it is poured into stainless steel tanks to allow the sediment (olive skins, pits and pulp) to settle at the bottom for several days.
When ready to extract, we test again for quality and then pull the extra virgin olive oil from the top of the tanks and pour in a dark glass bottle which protects the oil from harmful UV rays.
The result of our farmers’ hard work is a smooth and fresh tasting unfiltered extra virgin olive oil that retains its antioxidants, low oleic acid, polyphenol, oleocanthal, vitamins E, K, and other beneficial fatty content.
Each bottle of Origin 846 contains only unfiltered extra virgin olive oil from hand-picked olives grown in
our orchards. Each delicious production is fully traceable, down to the lot, where the actual olive trees live.
The transparency of where our food comes from is important to Origin 846, which is why we show
you this information, directly on our labels:
– The P on our label indicates the day the olive oil was produced.
– The E on the label indicates the best before date.
– The L is the lot number of the olive oil.
At any time, you can contact us to obtain a Certificate of Analysis, to understand the components of our extra virgin olive oil..
Keeping with the brand name, Origin 846 extra virgin olive oil is kept in dark glass bottles, measuring 846ml.
We only use dark glass to ensure our olive oil is protected from harmful UV rays. Exposure to UV rays damages olive oil and its health benefits.
This is very important to the benefits of Origin 846 – all its antioxidant and polyphenol properties are maintained due to the decanting and unfiltering process.
We also use glass bottles as we believe in best ecological practices. Our glass bottle and label are 100% recyclable.
