Dressing tip: 1/3 date crème vinegar – 2/3 Atlas olive oil.
The olives are harvested from late September until early October and processed into oil within a few hours using the ‘’cold-pressing method’’. This process optimally preserves its taste and produces a high-quality olive oil with a low acidity. After production the oil is stored in stainless steel barrels to prevent oxidation and preserve its specific flavour.
