Olive X-Press is an electric kitchen top appliance that gives
consumers the ability to make fresh, cold pressed olive oil in their own
homes. The counter top unit requires 5 minutes of work to make up to 500ml of fresh olive oil from whole olives at at time.
the shelf olive oil could be six months to two years old. Olive oil
starts deteriorating and losing its health benefits from the day it is
produced/bottled. Olive oil from the Olive X-Press is produced 'on
demand' and is always made 100% pure and fresh,” said Joe Fairleigh, VP
of Sales for Stratus Investments.
“Freshly made olive oil is
only available during harvest time, which is about three months out of
the year in the United States. Thanks to the Olive X-Press and our world
patented olive preservation technology, consumers can enjoy freshly
made, cold pressed olive oil year round” he said.
The oil extracting device
comprises a hammer-shear olive milling grinder, a malaxation bowl for
malaxation of milled olives having at least one opening; and at least one
filter for separating malaxation solids from liquids and collecting oil.
The device was designed
and engineered by Nir Padan, Yariv Gershony and Eric Turgeman from the
Rehovot University in Tel Aviv, Israel.
"We are looking for the right manufacturing and distribution partner who can see the
unique potential of the unit and the recurring revenue stream for olives, similar to the coffee pod model”, Joe Fairleigh added.
