The River Estate Press
The cold press olive oil extraction plant was imported from Italy in 2001 from the Enorossi factory in Umbertide, Umbria, Italy and installed in our purpose built press house facility. Bottling and storage facilities have also been incorporated in the building design.
The plant consists of washers, deleafers, elevators, crushing mill with double chamber mixer and a horizontal decanter (centrifuge). The plant is constructed from food grade stainless steel.
The plant can be operated 24 hours.
River Estate carries out contract pressing for other growers in the region, as we are the only approved facility in the Manukau and Auckland region.
The processing time is usually from mid- April to June/July, dependant on the season. If you would like to contact us about our contract processing services, please click here to contact us.
Processing for external customers is also performed by Wells Grove Estate Ltd at our Grove location in Wades Rd, Whitford. Bookings are essential to ensure that the olives are processed as soon as possible after delivery. Minimum quantity is 400-500 kgs.
Please contact us prior to harvesting to book your processing time.
