This mill, with new equipment and next-generation allows us to produce the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The old building of the mill is used for marketing, through the construction of a center of flavors of Baix Camp, a space totally dedicated to the EVOO from Riudecanyes, a local shop and a farm museum. We organize guided tours and tastings throughout the year.

Riudecanyes is a villa situated within walking distance of the sea, of the cities of Reus and Tarragona and at the same time we are in the mountains, enjoying all the peace that gives us the nature and the countryside.
We want people to get to know the culture of the oil, the place where it is produced and how it is made, to see olive trees, to know the territory, to learn the utilities that it has in the kitchen. We believe this is the way to make consumers faithful and consume extra virgin olive oil, so important in our Mediterranean diet, say many doctors, southern, naturists and cooks, that guarantee the properties of the EVOO and its benefits for our health.
