THE OLIVE OIL TRADITION
Mallafré is a family-run olive-oil mill that was set up in 1934 by Joan Mallafré Salvado and his wife, Josefa Cros Torrents, in a town called Riudoms in the Baix Camp region of Tarragona.
In 1984, my father extended the mill even further by purchasing two more up-to-date hydraulic presses.
Due to the increase in the production of olives in 1989 and with the help of the thirt generation of the family, a new centrigutacion system was introduced with the purchase of a press with a capacity to process 40.000 kg of olives per day. Following that, another continuos press was purchased, which enabled the family to double the mill production.
In 2003 whe purchased a new mill with the capacity to produce 100.000 kg per day.
Our olive-oil mill is unlike any other, due to the fact that it is made up of a set of millstones, four hydraulic presses and two continuous systems with partial extraction systems called Sinolea and Palacin, their respective decanters and centrifuge.
