La Masrojana, is a family business of Fam. Floch. Specializing in the processing of olives, the farm is one of the oldest in the region. Traditional processing without the use of chemical products has been handed down from generation to generation and is today continued under the direction of Julia Floch. Her motto: "We work very close to nature and refrain in favor of the product on artificial substances or preservatives. The olives are harvested by hand from September to November and immediately processed fresh. The pleasant, mild-aromatic taste of the oil results from the very rapid post-harvest processing. For the Floch family only handpicked olives come into question. Julia Floch selects the olive growers and their olives according to strict quality criteria, because after all, the third generation of the small family business delivers goods to the best delis in the world, and the company could not afford poor quality.
Arbequina is a Catalan olive variety, small and round, and therefore very labor intensive in the harvest. During growth, their color changes from light green to pink to dark olive. They are harvested in November. The color of the oil varies from emerald green to golden yellow. Arbequina olives offer a wide range of flavors, including apple, almond, walnut, banana, pineapple, fennel, spearmint, anise, green grass, tomato, artichoke and a surprising scent of green pepper.
