With a 14 year experience in the field of olive oil production, Shkalla Sh. can be called the leader in this field. Thanks to continuous efforts and assistance of foreign donors, the Shkalla Sh. today exports extra virgin olive oil to Switzerland as well as manufactures for the domestic market.
The olive oil production company "SHKALLA" is located in Lundër, in 6 km from the center of Tirana. It's a family business. The family history begins 100 years ago, where the Ramadan OIL oil mill worked in the village of Farkë. Work was discontinued due to the establishment of the socialist system whereby olive trees were returned to state property.
The activity resumed in 1996 with the support of the German project GTZ. The production line with a capacity of 400kg of olives per hour was purchased from PIERALISI Italy. In 2005, new investments were made by replacing this line with a modern equipment "MOD PANORAM 3 TG" with a capacity of 900-1400 kg/hour again from the well-known company PERALISI Italia
The SHKALLA company produces high quality oil. Since 2001 has started the certification of organic olive production. In 2003 company started exporting to Switzerland. Part of the success of the company has been supported by projects GTZ, SBCA/USAID, SASA/SDC Switzerland, which operate in Albania. In Albania, ALB Invest has supported company activities and helped to increase the exports.
