Italy: discovering olive harvesting and olive pressing

By di-ve.com,

Every Sunday at 1pm on One TV & di-ve.com, Avventura fil-Kampanja will be continuing discovering olive harvesting and olive pressing for the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Tuscany.

We will be seeing harvest with the use of modern machinery meaning that just one olive tree is harvested in 5 minutes. However, we will also be seeing the picking of olives by hand which takes more than half an hour per tree. This makes a big difference for big companies financially. Obviously, we will be also experiencing the pressing of olives with the cold press system.
