Olive Oil is then tested in the cooperatives and is stored in stainless steel tanks to preserve the high quality of the olive oil. Afterward, olive oil is sent to the olive oil filling station in Al-Ram that belongs to Al Reef Fair Trade. There, it gets tested again and filtered, and is eventually sorted into stainless steel tanks according to the type: organic, extra virgin and virgin. The last step is to fill the olive oil in bottles of different sizes.
