When Words become enterprise
Olive Pomace Oil is the oil that is extracted from the olive pulp after the first press.

This is because the International Olive Oil Council defines Olive Oil as “the oil obtained solely from the fruit of the olive tree, to the exclusion of oils obtained using solvents or re-esterification processes”
