NEW REFINERY

On 27th March 2015 we opened our new refining plant, with a capacity for processing 400 Tn of sunflower and olive oil per day. This was part of the expansion process Abril has been carrying out over the last few months, covering 20,000 square metres and consisting of the refinery itself, the storage warehouse and the loading and unloading area.

The refinery represents a major step forward for our company in qualitative terms, as until now we had only packaged and sold oils that were already refined, only carrying out a final filtering process for our Extra Virgin olive oil at our facilities.
