Olive Truck

To make great extra virgin olive oil, olives must be milled immediately after harvest. But olive mills are not always nearby olive groves, sometimes requiring the fruit to travel great distances before processing. Sam Bayraktar encountered this very issue when trying to achieve high-quality olive oils in his native Turkey. This inspired Sam to develop what would become Olive Truck—a mobile mill bringing the equipment to the grove instead of the other way around. After finding success in Turkey, Sam brought his olive truck—outfitted with state-of-the-art technology—to California. Now, Olive Truck is able to travel to the far reaches of the state to mill diverse cultivars and produce unique extra virgin olive oils.
